    Need some advice. I'm suffering a lot with pain in back well really low down. I've been trying to walk go work as normal but today I'm in agony. All down the back of my legs and bottom. I see. Chiropractor but not that regulary. And ideas what it could be. Or should I go to the gp and see what they say. I can't carry on as it's getting difficult getting trousers on or picking things up from the floor. :(:(

    I was just about to post about this. Had a really bad night in work even though I'm sitting where possible I'm still in agony so I've booked a appointment to see a doctor this morning and hopefully he can sign me off work. Horrible isn't it chick! I will post and tell you what they say. Take it easy xxxx

    Has your doctor signed you off babes like a note or anything saying not fit for work?
    If you've signed yourself off I'm unsure? Xxx

    Hi - sounds like sciatica - it's really horrible & needs anti inflammatories so I think you're better off seeing your gp as I don't know if they're safe in pregnancy. I've had a few bouts of it - once where I couldn't sit, let alone stand up (ended up calling doc out) but that was the worst it had ever been. It's to do with the sciatic nerve in your back (could be pinched or pulled) & the pain runs down your leg from your bum. I hope it gets better soon. Good luck x

    Im getting this as well, the exact same pain as you describe! It getting so bad that im having to get my partner or family to roll me over if im on my back because it gets quite bad and the grinding and shooting pains down my legs become a bit unbearable sometimes. I called my midwife on wednesday and she has put me through to physio, so maybe you should do this? I have a feeling that is what your doctor will do as well, and you will need to see them anyway if you need time off work to rest, recooperate and look after you and baby!!

    As far as pay goes, I thought that all pregnant women are entitled to paid sick leave at any point during pregnancy and for however long is necessary :)

    I've managed to get through today. God knows how I'm in agony. Defo going to the docs on Monday. I've barely walked anywhere today in the hope that it helps. I've also had it where I can't get back up if I'm on my back I nearly scream in pain. Hopefully they will be able to sort me out.

    I was about to post about this!

    I have terrible pain down the back of my left thigh. It started with numbness about a fortnight ago and now I'm close to tears! Typically I totally forgot to ask the midwife about it at my 16 week appointment.

    Does anyone have any tips on how to sit/lie? I can't find a way without pain!

    I'm not sure i have the sane. I get a pain in my left bum cheek that can go up or down too from thigh to back but 90% just bum and bit below. I use a hot water bottle to help (not sure it's advised in pregnancy) have a warm bath and see a deep tissue massage lady once a month to help. I normally get neck and back pain from tension that she helps me with but that's a lot better since being pregnant (think I'm trying hard to keep stress down) but my bum is now painful!! I get cramp in my toes often too worse this side. If it carries on I'll add it to my list of things to ask the doctor about in 10 days (list includes weekly migraines and lump on nipple). I'm falling apart!
