Back pain, should I be worried??

So as many of you know I've been sick with pneumonia for like 3 weeks but this was the week it hit me and I've been pretty much sitting on the couch for 5 days.
I had another checkup today with my PCM to see if I was improving and they ended up putting me on prednisone which they assured me was safe for me and baby.
Tonight tho I have had awful low back pain and discomfort in my uterine area when moving around. My knees and legs also are in a lot of pain all of a sudden. I have taken Tylenol and it does nothing.
I did cook dinner and do dishes tonight (something dh has been doing all week) so maybe I just overdid it standing too long? I'm not sure but does this sound like something I should be worried about? Anyone experienced this? How did it turn out? I'm thinking I will just go to bed and see if I feel better in the morning....?

My back has been killing me lately, especially on days that I am on my feet a lot.

I thought about using a heating pad- or just taking a hot bath or shower. But I've had a fever all week that Tylenol isn't helping with. I was afraid to raise my body temp any higher than it already is. At the beginning of the week it was up near 102 and now it floating around 99.6. They say anuthing over 100 is dangerous for the baby so I'm trying to keep that down.

As far as I can tell, it feels better this morning but just a touch achy still. I think it may have been that I was on my feet too much yesterday. I usually go to a yoga class saturday mornings which I thought might help me feel better but I'm afraid to over exert myself an end up feeling like bum again.

Yeah, if you are dealing with a fever, you should stay home and REST!!!

Yes! My back is killing me! It just started yesterday and I hoped after a good night sleep it would go away. No such luck. Mine is more in the middle of my back and it hurts so bad I feel like I'm walking like a 70 year old woman. I just took a tylenol and if it doesnt get better in a day or two I'll call my midwife.

Hope your's feels better.

I am feeling better. I think I overdid the household chores on Friday. I'll have to take it easier I guess so I don't end up in pain again!
