I have lower back pain and a sinus infection. Are the two related at all?

Sprain/strain: It is unlikely that your sinus infection and the low back pain are connected...except indirectly that if you feel bad/sick because of the infection, your tolerance for dealing with the low back pain will be diminished. Your low back pain can be a lumbar facet issue, a discogenic pain or simply a strain/sprain. You could also have a kidney stone or stone in one of your ureters. See your doctor. ...Read more

Advil Cold and Sinus: Advil Cold and Sinus contains pseudoephedrine which decreases breast milk supply. Avoid Advil Cold and Sinus while breastfeeding. Also avoid Tylenol #3 as it contains codeine which passes into breast milk. Okay to take plain tylenol or advil for pain. More about cold and allergy remedies while breastfeeding:
