  • Call your doctor!

  • that sounds like sciatica pain! I am a massage therapist. sciatica pain feels like sharp needles, stabbing or shooting pain. it can start in your back and run down your leg, stay in your back, or only hurt in your leg. The baby is more than likely laying on this nerve and causing it to spasm. call your doc just to make sure but if he/she says its nothing try using an ice pack on it NOT HEAT!!! Heat may feel great but will cause it to spasm more. Ice will cause any swelling to be released.
