upper back pain, 4 weeks pregnant


I know that lower back pain is very common during pregnancy (especially the later stages), but is anyone else out there in early PG having excruciating upper back pain?

the dull, droning muscle ache extends from the middle of my spine up to my shoulders and neck. it is constant, and no changing of positions or stretching alleviates it.

oy!

In my opinion if it is extreme pain I would call the doctor!

I've had it for about 4 days now, and read online that it's normal in early pregnancy because progesterone makes all the ligaments/tendons stretch out. It gets better when I wear pajamas, but any 'normal' clothes, especially my previously comfortable bra (which I'm not filling out yet), make it awful. It's just constant, achy, like I slept in a weird position, except all day long.

The word 'excruciating' was probably overdoing it a bit, apologies for that. It was just horrid at the time I wrote that, but now that I'm in a tank top and flannel pajama pants, I'm not noticing it as much as my sore boobs.
