Does anyone know any little tricks for easing back pain? I've just jumped into bed and it's excruciating, it's like I have electric shocks going right up my spine and round my hips into my legs and actually causes my back to stiffen and unable to move it. Is this something I should phone a doctor about or speak to my midwife? It's stopped a little just now, feels like pressure but my back still feels all stiff 😞
