Nerve pain/damage?

I've always had horrible back pain since i've had my son..i believe i possibly ruptured a disc from the pressure or maybe even injury from the epidural. i'm not sure. I'ts never bothered me bad enough to have it looked at though. Now that i am pregnant though i am in a lot of pain. It starts with burning and tingling and turns to numbness in my right leg and generates to my hip and lower back when i stand or walk for more than 15 to 20 mins. Can this be because my uterus is stretching and pushing on some nerves? I think i should have this looked at now for sure but would like to know what some of you may think it could be?

  • It could be your sciatic nerve. But, you should go to your OBGYN to have it checked out.
