Drink more water…

Julie wasn't feeling well today. She's had really bad back pain lately. Today it was unbearable. It was so bad that the "telephone nurse" had us go to the hospital to get checked out.
So we went in, and guess what! It turns out that the cure to back pain is water! Or at least that's what they told her. "You need to drink more water."

I wonder if water will cure my back problems as well?

If this works, the makers of water are going to put the folks at Tylenol right out of business!

And if it doesn't work… Does anyone have any suggestions on what to do for intense back pain? Julie will be very appreciative!

    Tylenol will help somewhat. Stay hydrated, even though I know Julie’s got probably zero bladder capacity at this point. If there are certain knots of pain in her back, a good massage to loosen the knots may help. Heating pads may also help, although I know she’s trying to stay cool at this point. A warning: read up on back labor pains. It feels like a permanent back muscle spasm – it tightens and doesn’t let go. If Julie is having back pain now, then she is a prime candidate for having back labor. I had it with my second child, and I really really REALLY wanted that epidural the minute I walked into the hospital!

    In the meantime, hang tight! You’re within sight of the goal!

    Massage the woman! And everything Deanna said.

    Good luck!
