    this is awful , been suffering like this since i was about 26 weeks and its got worse.
    the more i tend to do the worse it gets.
    i got told it might be pgp but the symptoms i have match to sciatica and so do yours by the sound of it!
    book an appointment at your docs, he has given me codeine and they have helped.
    also a freeze pack tends to help me x

    It sounds more like sciatica :( unfortunately nothing much can do apart from try not to lay on your back if you can help it as that caused it all time for me and I know it's painful but walking does wear it off. The nerve is trapped so possibly baby is on it or hops have snagged it a little so try a few movements and I really hope it goes for you!!! It's awful :( xxx


    Tapatalking so I can't see sigs x

    That sounds like sciatica. I had this in my left bum cheek for a few weeks but went away at about 27 weeks and I've been ok since fx. I bought a gym ball and that really helps. Hope yours clears up because it really isn't nice xx
