Hi everyone. So I’m five weeks pregnant tomorrow. Since about 1pm today I’ve had this pain in my groin on the right hand side. It like a mega ache then it travels into my right leg. I’m worried like mega worried. I’ve taken two paracetamol and have had a small hot water bottle placed in my groin but no change. Am I over reacting or is something going wrong? What do you advise? Could it be sciatica oh I’ve tried ringing my clinic but they are shut. I’ve had no bleeding also
Really worried: Hi everyone. So I’m... - Fertility Network UK
It's classic sciatica symptoms I believe
Try rubbing the lower back area esp coccyx
And do stretches in your legs - Google it
A natural relief is magensium oil you can rub into skin and back pain as it's a nerve and muscle relaxant. Perfectly safe for pregnancy and works really fast. Great for nerve cramps and restless legs in pregnancy too x
Hi Saya I did think it was sciatica. I’ve cancelled my appointment so I can ring my clinic in the morning. I googled it and it says sciatica doesn’t start till the second trimester. My brain is just doing over time. Google says that walking is good. Well I’m back at work tomorrow and I’m a post woman. So if there is still symptoms I think my clinic will know what’s best to do. Thank you all I really appreciate your concerns and helpful suggestions xx
Did you manage to get through to clinic?
Definitely worth keeping all options in mind and getting some advice regardless. But try some treatment options in meantime as if it is sciatica and you are on your feet all day at work it can get worse very quickly.
Of course hope it's nothing more serious than that but as hope0ofyou says below it is worth asking clinic regarding ectopic
Hope you get your answers x
