My newest pregnancy pain is intense Sciatica. I’ve experienced sciatica before, but not like this. I have never had such a sharp, stabbing pain that radiates down my leg whenever I move. I complained about some tingly nerve pain I was feeling that stemmed from pinching in my SI joints a few weeks ago but now after experiencing this, that was nothing!
The sharp pain is in my left SI joint and nothing gives it relief. It feels like there is a sharp knife stuck in it all the time. The worst part is when I go to walk though. Every time I lift my left foot to move it forward to walk, I get an intense, shooting pain down the back and side of my left leg. Its so bad that my leg is sometimes buckling beneath me. I am actually limping in pain.
I haven’t been able to uncover anything that makes it feel better or worse. Right now, that nerve is really pissed off and angry with me. It has been four days that the pain has been this bad. Its really freaking me out that this could be my reality for the next four months until the twins are born. Its too early to be feeling this awful!
