So much pain

I'm about 14 weeks pregnant and have the WORST pain on my right side in my ribs at the back. I've never felt anything like it. It's getting worse as the day goes on. Has anyone else had this and found something that helps. Really wishing I could take cocodamol right now sad

You need to see a medical professional if you have unexplained pain which is that bad.

Ring your midwife or epu it could be anything, including a uti which needs treatment asap.

Will ring up, thank you. I'm sure it's a pulled muscle rather than a kidney infection, I've had lots of those and it's in the wrong place but best to get seen really

Not saying you shouldnt get it checked out, but have a good big glug of gaviscon and try standing up or lifting your right arm up and see if that helps relieve the pain for the time being.

There was a thread very recently about something very similar and a few of us agreed that heartburn can present in odd places when you are pregnant. Hurts like hell too!

Pastabest, thank you! I didn't think of that. I'll feel like a right numpty if that's what it is ha. Midwife said it sounds like a pulled muscle and to see the doc if I can get an app. Otherwise just rest. So hopefully gaviscon and a hot water bottle and I'll be right as rain
