    Hello,

    I took the day off of work because I was having dizzy spells, but now something new has come along and is really hurting!!

    I have a pain at the very bottom of my back/top of my bum (I have included an informative diagram to help you see where :D )
    [​IMG]
    It is difficult to describe, but I can't sit down because it hurts. i have to stand or lie on my side. It hurts if I cough or move suddenly or move from lying to standing.
    What could it be? It just came out of nowhere this morning!!

    I have had Sciatica before and its very painful. I still get aches and pains now.

    Try the hot water bottle and a warm bath.

    Hope you feel better soon. :hug:

    sciatica is irritation of a nerve ending in the back causing pain to go down the nerve into your leg - this sounds more like and your drawing indicates the area of the sacroiliac joint - joints round the pelvis so 2 of these at the back and the symphysis pubis joint at the front loosen during pregnancy - I have had problems with mine in every pregnancy - always on the right - I was advised by a physio the first time to avoid heavy lifting adn walking too far and I was given a bump support belt to wear which helped a little. Paracetamol is fine to take when pregnant, warm baths can help and pregnancy yoga etc may also ease things - hot water bottle is also a very good suggestion - if things dont ease see your midwife and ask to be referred to a physio :)

    thanks for your advice everyone, I had a look on google and you may well be right. I have an appointment with my midwife on monday for my 28 week check (I will be 27 weeks, but she made the appointment) so I will ask her about it if it hasn't gone awy by then.
    I hadn't thought about taking paracetamol, I might try one now and see if it helps.

    thank you again, you are all soo sweet :hug: :hug:
