I had my son almost 3 weeks ago. Right after, I started having this terrible, sharp pain in my hip that shoots up my back and down my leg EVERYTIME I step on my right leg (any pressure). The weird thing is, it's EXACTLY where I felt all my contractions. I had back labor. Now everytime I step, well..it kinda feels like when I was in labor - my mom said I let out the same moan I did when I walk like when I was in labor. I went to the ER and they gave me Motrin and Steroids. I have finished the steroids today and still woke up and the same pain. I talked to a nurse at the Newborn Nursery & she said it's delivery pains.
I have tried everything-nothing seems to help. The Dr. said this is normal, it's the sciatic nerve and it will probably flare up from time to time alot of women get this after having a baby. Did anyone else have this problem and if so - did it ever completely go away or how did you deal with the pain?
