  • It could be the sciatica nerve. It is probably caused by the way the baby is laying.

  • There's a possibility that one of the disks in your back has become dislodged, causing it to rub against a nerve traveling down your leg. Or the sheer weight of your pregnancy is causing pinching of that nerve. I had sciatica while I was pregnant, and it was not only annoying but painful. Hopefully it will go away after the baby is born! Good luck!

  • ive had this before the baby though....the pregnancy is just aggrivating it. how can they treat sciatica?

  • This is exactly, and I do mean EXACTLY, where and how my fibromyalgia started.

    For me, I've been med free for 27 days, and I have found that extra vitamin D (sunlight) has helped me tremendously!

  • know when its sunny and Ive spent time outside I have noticed a diffrence and less of the "tingle" and "creepy crawly" feeling when laying down. right now th weather's been crappy and its been more noticeable. i'll look up fibromyalgia and see what I might be contendeding with. my only other thought is that since I have a disorder that causes tumors to grow on the nerves maybe I have one on my nerves under the skin
