I've had this trapped nerve/sciatica feeling a few times, here's what I advised on another thread - just copied and pasted
My sister told me a great exercise with a tennis ball that helps pop the nerve out a bit and gave me loads of relief. I'll do my best to describe it! I do it against a wall for less impact though you can do it on the floor too for a stronger impact.
Against the wall -
stand with your knees bent, back against the wall and the tennis ball wedged between you and the wall - place it at the top of the buttock where the nerve pain is. Then roll yourself up the wall until your legs are straight - so the ball rolls down to about the middle of your buttock with a fair bit of pressure. Do this a few times (I tend to move it to the right and left a bit each time). Hopefully it will relieve the pain a bit.
PGP pelvic growth pain - mild version of SPD (SPD is only diagnosed with an x-ray.) PGP manifests itself as sciatica like pains, lower back pain, hip pain or coccyx pain or a mix. Very common in pregnancy.
I've had this for the past month or so, and its only getting worse! I haven't seen a midwife or doctor about it yet, but I have an appointment for next wednesday, so I'm going to mither her about then.
Today its been pretty unbearable, so I'm plonked on the couch dedicating my day to my laptop!
I'm starting to have issues lifting my legs and separating them. I sit with my legs crossed a lot, but today i cannot even manage to open them wide enough to cross them!
