Back and abdominal pain 6 months postpartum

Hi, has anyone experienced lower back pain with pelvic abdominal pain like cramps 6 months after giving birth?. My GP has tested for everything and all come back negative. She thinks it's my body still settling down after birth. I've bottle fed from 1 month and had 3 periods since but can't seem to get rid of these aches. Aches is a better word, pain is child birth!(which was a quick 2 hr natural labour). I've had health anxiety as my mum passed away from cancer a couple of years ago and googling these symptoms has not helped!! Just wondering how long it took for everyone's aches and pains to go away. The back pain might be muscular and I've just jumped to worse case scenario 🙈

I'm six months post partum too and I have low back pain. Sometimes pelvic, sometimes legs too. I saw an osteopath and she said my pelvis is out of alignment.

This was a couple of months ago. She adjusted it and it felt good but she did say it wouldn't stay in like that as I had just stopped breastfeeding and the relaxin hormone would still be in my system.

I think generally the relaxin hormone can take a while for everything to settle. She told me to come back in a couple of months and have it adjusted again.

P.s I also have health anxiety. It is being managed just now but post natally was severe again. I still think I have a particular terminal illness even though I've seen specialists and bad negative test results. I'm going for a second opinion in may. Have had HA for past 6.5 years. So I understand how your mind can jump from zero to 100 in seconds.xx

Mine feels like a mix of period cramping from and back plus some upset tummy upset sometimes. It's worrying me that there might be serious problems!

What type of cancer did your mum die from? I'm really sorry to hear that btw

Could it be lower back pain from carrying your child? Do you often carry them around/push a pram at an uncomfortable height?
