With every pregnancy I end up having problems with my sciatic nerve.. My uterus puts pressure on it and it causes shooting pains down my legs.. When I lay down, whatever side I lay on ends up going numb in my hip and thigh area. Its started to kick in and it is driving me insane. Have any of you ladies experienced this?
I haven't had that pain either, but I've heard of others who have. A chiropractor may be able to help. In the past I had a lot of nerve problems in my back. I saw a chiropractor for awhile and it helped. He also gave me specific exercises to do to relieve the pinched nerves. Also B vitamins are supposed to help. I know you are allowed to take extra B6 in pregnancy to help with nausea...maybe they would help the sciatic nerve. Hope it gets better soon!
