Have any of you's had a trapped nerve in pregnancy? At around 12 weeks pregnant I started getting this pain in my lower back/ leg that when I moved certain ways sent a shooting pain all down my body, I mentioned it to the midwife who said it would be a trapped nerve and the baby laying on it can cause it happen. I kept getting it for about 1 week then nothing.
I'm now 22 weeks pregnant and have been getting the same thing, only much much worse. Paracetamol does nothing and it's got to the point where I sometimes get stuck in the bath because I can't put pressure on one side of my body. I can't lay down because this shooting pain happens. I have actually never been in so much pain with anything in all my life. I literally sit in tears with it and today and tonight has been especially bad as it's been constant for 24 hours and nothing eases it
I've googled it and it just keeps saying it's a trapped nerve or scianta and there nothing anyone can do. But I currently don't have a midwife to phone as I've moved from uni back home and I've only just registered at a doctors back at home and I'm waiting for a referral to a midwife.
Any tips or help? As I can't carry on like this. Thanks in advance xxx
