I started getting a pain in my lower back at 26 weeks, right in the dimple area with the pain shooting down my leg.It was so painfull that i couldnt even turn over in bed nor walk properly. My DR thought it was the sciatic nerve and i have been going for physio since ( 4 weeks) and it turns out its pelvic instability which is very common in pregnancy.
At 30 weeks i can now turn over in bed without crying out and can manage to walk up the stairs again unaided. Have been given lots of pelvic floor strenthining excercies as wee as realignment and different stretches to try and solve the issue but have been advised that this can continue long after giving birth. Highly recommend the physio and will look into an oestiopath too.
