  • Do you keep anything in your back pocket?

  • sciatica (sp?) that's where your sciatic nerve runs

  • pinched nerve
    especially if pregnant
    i had during and nurse told me of yoga position
    i think it was called lion something
    get on all fours, on bed good, out head down and shoulders down, stick butt in arm, feel slight stretch

    ask doc first, if pregnant, but took pain away after three times doing in one day
    and pain was constant before

  • I have that pain every single day :(
    Its the sciatic nerve. If your not pregnant ( which is commone with pregnancy)...did you possibly pinch the nerve in your lower back?

  • yep sounds like classic sciatic nerve pain. Heat can help, a chiropractor can help a little bit as well, but sometimes only time will help it. I've had it last for months
