Trapped nerve like pain in left buttock!


Hi girls

I have been suffering from a nasty twinge for the last few days, it feels like a trapped nerve in my left buttock and is causing me to hobble around like a 100 year old woman!!!

I'll be 36 weeks tomorrow, is anyone else around this stage and experiencing something similar?

Could this be anything to do with the position of the baby's head?

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.

Good luck, back pain really sucks xx

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 went to the doctors with the exact same pain at 30 weeks, was diagnosed with sciatica. He signed me off work for 2 weeks, saw the midwife at 32 weeks and she advised me to finish work because of it.

Was told to do some gentle stretches and walking to try and ease it x

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!

I definitely feel your pain!
