- is there a such thing as an over the counter muscle relaxer for pregnant women?
- Q: i am 14 weeks pregnant and i am 3 weeks away from my next doc appointment. when i walk, i am very stiff. its like my body locks up and my joints are stiff. i can’t bend my knees when i walk, i can’t swing my arms very much without looking or feeling robotic. sometimes because of the stiffness, i feel pressure/pain in my lower back. i am just painfully awkward while walking but i don’t know what i can do about it if anything because i am 3 1/2 months pregnant. is there anything over the counter that i can take that wont harm my baby
- A: I do not think you should take any muscle relaxants at all. The uterine muscles which are holding your baby may respond too – not good at all. Unfortunately during pregnancy, some pain just has to be tolerated to keep the baby safe.I am 31 weeks pregnant and have disc prolapses and sciatica which gives me a numb leg and constant muscle spasm and back pains, but I would not take anything like a muscle relaxant. Sometimes I take paracetamol, but that doesnt do much really.Hang in there and get the baby born safe first, then look at medication for your problems after.
- Lying about MISCARRIAGE?? I need your help!?
- Q: okay i need yalls help- i have a friend that told us she was pregnant & then miscarried- twice in 2 weeks- i want to believe her but some of her story is a bit far fetched. I need opinions please!! Esp if you have had a miscarriage reply & let me know what you think!! (some background, she is 27, perfectly healthy, has a 4 & 2 yr old, recently seperated from her hubby & has a live in boyfriend in her new apt. Has not filed for divorce)My friend told me 2 weeks ago that she was pregnant (on 9/20) four days later she said she was bleeding and was going to the ER (on 9/24) she said she didnt hurt, had no pain & acted perfectly normal that day. Later that night she said they told her she had a miscarriage but was still pregnant (i know this is possible, called Vanishing Twin). She also said the ER gave her a shot of Dilaudid, a super strong muscle relaxer/ pain killer they only give for severe pain (which they are not allowed to give to pregnant women) and wrote her a script for percocet & muscle relaxers. So when asked if she was going to her doctor to get checked she kept saying “i go __day’ but that day when you ask her what they said, her reply was always ‘they couldnt fit me in, i go __day’ and you get the same excuse that day as well. Well this past saturday (10/03) she said she started bleeding again, left work & went to the ER. Later that night she said that she had miscarried the other baby. She claims they gave her a shot to help her ‘pass’ the baby within 24-48 hours on her own. She was supposed to go to the doctor today @ 3:30pm but at 4:30pm i passed her on the road coming the opposite direction of where her doc office is. I asked her what the doctor said & this was her response: ‘i passed the baby at home but still have some matter to get rid of. Im supposed to go back next week for them to get it all out. They did some tests & blood work.’ When i asked her how he saw her so quickly (so odd that for 2 weeks she couldnt get an appt at all yet this day she was supposedly in & out in less than an hour) she replied ‘he was concerned about me & got me back fast, then he yelled at his nurse for not getting me in sooner.’ I would hate to think she would lie about something like this but so much of it doesnt make sense to me. When she found out she was pregnant she didnt want her kids to know & only told a few of us at work. She didnt seem to have any pain what-s0-ever the 1st time she claims to have miscarried so why did they give her dilaudid?? If she was still pregnant the ER wouldnt have given her that shot anyways right? (its a narcotic that can cause addiction and/harm to your unborn child, seems like a lawsuit if a hospital gives it to you dont you think?) If i had a miscarriage I would think my doctor would fit me in where ever he/she could, esp if you are still pregnant!! That way they can help you keep the other one right? an hour doctor appt is quick as hell, i dont think ive ever been in & out that fast, esp when it comes to something like this where they have to do blood work & check your hoo-ha & uterus & stuff. That takes time…..And lastly you miscarried the other one & passed it but they dont want to see you for another week to get all the ‘matter’ out?? i dont think so….what do yall think?? Im betting on that she wasnt even pregnant to begin with
- A: The part that seems the strangest to me is her lacksidaisical attitude toward the whole pregnancy, miscarriage, and doctor’s appointments. If I was having a miscarriage and my doc couldn’t squeeze me (especially carrying another baby), I would freak out and literally go to the office and sit there until they saw me. But I would never have just accepted that they didn’t have time for me. It is important to have such things checked out. I also don’t see why a hospital would give her a narcotic if she was still pregnant with another baby. It wouldn’t necessarily be a lawsuit, but it would be major trouble if something happened to that pregnancy. I have had quick appointments, but it really does depend on what they were looking for. My vote is she didn’t get pregnant but was needing some attention or feeling left out of something. I have had a cousin who said she had a miscarriage because she was jealous of another pregnant cousin. It is sad, but I guess it doesn’t hurt me, so I can’t care so much.
- Is there an immediate relief from Restless Leg Syndrome?
- Q: I am 9 months pregnant and realize that RLS (restless leg syndrome) is not uncommon in pregnant women. I was looking online for some remedies and all I found where solutions to keep from getting RLS or “attacks” (exercise, diet, medications). I want to know if there is something I can do right now to make me feel like I don’t have to move my legs?? I have taken a muscle relaxer, stood up, stretched, read a book, watched a movie, went for a walk – Does anyone have any tips for immediate relief?
- A: Hi Janna. Spot gave you some good, but general advice. The only suggestion I can offer for immediate symptom relief is a hot bath with Epsom salts (they contain magnesium sulfate – see below). There is a substantial body of scientific evidence that suggests RLS is an iron deficiency disorder and/or magnesium deficiency. Obviously, pregnancy can stress your biological systems that are dependent on these nutrients. Below are links to scientific papers on these issues. If your doctor lacks the nutritional knowledge to assist you, you may want to consider seeing a nutritionally trained health care professional.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19514512?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_SingleItemSupl.Pubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=1&log$=relatedreviews&logdbfrom=pubmedhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16930377?ordinalpos=1&itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_SingleItemSupl.Pubmed_Discovery_RA&linkpos=2&log$=relatedreviews&logdbfrom=pubmedhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19817966?itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum&ordinalpos=3http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17557494?itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum&ordinalpos=2http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9703590?itool=EntrezSystem2.PEntrez.Pubmed.Pubmed_ResultsPanel.Pubmed_RVDocSum&ordinalpos=10Best wishes and good luck.
