    Is anyone else finding they are seizing up if you sit down or lie down for too long? I feel so stiff & my back & other joints ache. I took the dog out for an hour yesterday, didn't do my usual power walk because of the heat....it was more of a slow waddle, & as the evening progressed I was in agony, had to have a hot bath. Am stiff today too, anyone else get this?x

    Yep! You'd wet yourself laughing seeing me getting up from the sofa or bed, I'm all hunched from pain and takes a couple of mins to ease up. It's ridiculous! I can't walk far at all without aggravating my spd so feel like I'm making it all wise by resting too much, then do things and that makes it worse too! Hubby has to help me up a lot, and I'm not even that big!!

    Pain in your pelvis and can be called PGP too (pelvic girdle pain). They tend to call it all PPGP now ( pregnancy related pelvic girdle pain) Mine is mostly pain on my pubic bone as basically those bones are separating too early. It can be excruciating and for some people they end up on crutches! Can include thigh, back and hip pain.
    Hope you don't have it!

    Yes I stagger across the room when I get off the sofa or out of bed. Takes me a minute or two to loosen up a bit xxx

    Oh yes. I seem to seize up as the day goes on. Fine in the morning, but I'm a mess by the nighttime!
