i've been having some pain and tenderness in my pubic area for several weeks and it's steadily getting worse. when I walk it's quite painful and I can't lift up my legs to get dressed, so have to sit down to put on underwear/trousers etc!! Has anyone else suffered with this and do they know what it is?
It isn't an ache, it's actual pain! i will mention to MW on Tuesday when I see her but thought I'd post a thread to see if anyone can help me.
Most commonly it's SPD but I know that I've been diagnosed with sacroiliac joint dysfunction and am currently seeing a pregnancy chiropractor for it so I think the best thing you could do is tell your GP or MW Hun xxxx
i saw my mw last week and mentioned exactly what you have and she told me it was the beginnings of spd - i had only had it a few days but sounds like you have had it a little while. They offered me to see a physio but your so close i doubt u will go to one
Yes, sounds very similar to what I have and I was told by physio on Thursday that I have SPD. Hopefully your mw will be able to give you some advice on how to control it over the next few weeks. I was advised the majority of cases clear up 2/3 weeks after delivery.
Sound like SPD to me... I have it for 3 weeks now... And my MW and GP did not refer me to physio.
Avoid lifting thing (even if they are not too heavy) walk slowly and not too long, try not spreding your legs. And offcourse rest as much as you can (it really helps)
Do any house work seating if you can... Or let OH do them.
Hope it helps.
I think I'm starting to get this on my left side. I've checked what part of the pelvis it is and it's apparently the ischium with me. It hurts when I walk sometimes and especially when going uphill! I'm going to mention it at my next checkup and hope it isn't SPD!
