First, a link with helpful info that tells about what SPD is, what the symptoms are, how it can be treated, and stories from women who have had treatment for it: https://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/pubicpain.htm It seems so many of us have this, I thought it would be good to have a thread for it. I've suspected it since near Thanksgiving. My biggest indicator is the horrible tearing pain I get in my hip/pelvis when I walk for more than a couple minutes. And if I do too much, I end up in agony until I've had at least a good 36 hours of only getting out of bed to go to the bathroom, not doing anything else. It is really difficult because if I am rested up, I feel perfectly fine when I get up, and I end up doing too much, which leaves me in completely debilitating pain for at least a couple of days. I now use a motorized cart whenever I go somewhere that offers them, even if I find the pain tolerable at the time. It helps me stave off the agony just a bit longer. I used to get dirty looks from people all the time, but they must recognize me now or else I've just stopped noticing because I've stopped caring. I am doing what's best for my baby by making sure I minimize whatever pain I inflict upon myself by leaving the safety of my bed! A new symptom that's gotten really annoying of late is cracking in my symphysis pubis when I roll over in bed or otherwise move in an odd way. It feels slightly relieving, but really painful at the same time, and makes it a little extra sore for a while afterward. I've also been unable to shake my foot when laying on my side anymore like I always used to because it makes it feel like my SP is splitting apart. It makes me restless and just adds to the agony. I also usually forget pretty quickly and keep absent-mindedly trying to do it. The good news is that I have finally gotten a referral to a chiropractor through my family doctor, I am just waiting now to find out when my appointment is. Hopefully he will be able to get me some relief. I'm just glad my OB didn't refuse to give me clearance to see a chiro just because she doesn't believe in SPD and refused to even listen to my complaints about my symptoms both times I tried to talk to her about it. So, how has everyone else been handling their SPD?
