Painkillers during pregnancy
Is there anything stronger than Panado that one could take while pregnant? I've been having a terrible back ache for the past 2 weeks (which I don't think is pregnancy related as I am only 16weeks now) and don't think a Panado will help for this.

Paracetemol is the only safe painkiller. Measures like the hot water bottle may help.
