I recently found out that my sciatic nerve is pinched,on top of being in the midst of a flare that looks like it will remain flared for the last 9 weeks of my pregnancy. I have been in severe amounts of pain for the last few weeks but last week it got horribly worse and fast I was unable to walk, the not being able to walk has come and gone over the last few weeks, and when I can move around it's still incredibly painful. Now, what my question is...Has anyone had the same problem, I know sciatica usually doesn't go completely away, you will probably have trouble with it again once it's happened once, but what has worked for you to help relieve the pain a little bit? And by the way, I have talked to my doc, I went to the er the first day I couldn't walk(in a wheel chair mind you)and my doc has basically told me to suck it up, which I'm fine with I'm done begging for help with all of this from any doc it just causes me more pain and grief.
