Sciatic nerve pain

Postby TinleyKaye16 » Tue Jul 19, 2016 10:06 am

Feels like someone is stabbing in the left butt cheek all day long. I'm miserable and I'm just starting my third trimester. Anyone have this? What did you do for relief??

oh yes I had it with my DD. The only thing that helped was stretching and lying on the floor with my shoulders on the floor, bringing my lower half to my side, leading with the knee. Do that slowly though or it will light up your RLP. That helped get DD into a different position too, which also helped alleviate the pain. Good luck! :)

I feel like she's laying sideways with her head on my left side and that's where it hurts. I'll try those stretches! Thank you!!

I have this really bad. started at about 33 weeks on both sides. It was so bad sometimes I would just start crying because no matter how I laid or sat it wouldn't go away. But I started reading about exercises for this and they helped. Stretching has done a lot and also lifting weights using my core muscles, like lifting something across the front of your body starting at knee level things like that. Pushups have been helping me and planks, pretty much anything that builds my back muscles and then stretches my back/butt muscles. It's the worst symptom.
