Piriformis/Sciatic Pain

anyone else getting this? Intense, shocks of pain in the left side of my lower back, down thru my butt cheek and down the back of my leg.

Was so painful last night I was almost in tears. It's better this morning (I found some exercises online) but I can still feel it's tight.

I had terrible sciatic pain with both of my last pregnancies. It was one of the first symptoms I had and it lasted the whole time. I ended up going to the chiropractor when I was pregnant with DS. I think it helped some but I couldn't afford to go three times a week... Sorry you're dealing with this. I know how much it sucks!! I hope it gets better!

Thanks, ladies. I found some exercises online so I'm going to do them a few times a day and see if it helps. Had the pains again yesterday while we were walking to the restaurant for dinner.

Thankfully it was just with DH so nothing to feel embarrassed about. He didn't notice that I'd stopped walking for half a block tho Blum 3
