So, since Sunday night I've been having pain in my lower back left side, almost at my buttox, that if I twist or stand or anything hurts like crazy! Had a normal checkup today and Dr. confirmed that it is my sciatic nerve. OUCH. I hope this goes away soon! She said there wasn't much I could do but cold/hot compresses or warm baths. One of her nurses told me to massage it with a tennis ball, thathad helped her. I've only gained about 3 pounds this whole pregnancy, so I know it isn't weight gain!
Anyone else suffering? Any tricks or tips you wanna share?
