  • * kids! wow!!! It could be your sciatica. It is a nerve in your back that can effect different parts of your body.

  • So you were 9 1/2 weeks pregnant at the time of the accident; how long ago was that? You said at first you were fine but now not, but you haven't said how much time has passed.

    Do you have ANY diagnosis?

  • Did they at least make sure the baby was fine? I'd think they'd deliver so they can take care of YOU. Sounds like nerve damage.

  • no they didnt even do a doppler or an ultrasound to see if the baby was ok after the accident.....told me well its so deep in your pelvis its got armor on........... but they also said even if you are going to miscarry cuz of accident there is nothing we can do about that... and all they did was xray my neck to see if its not broke and sent me home.... i told them that i was having pain in other parts of back but they didnt even do anything about it
    and still not doing anything I HATE OR HOSPITAL we live near a town with only 11,000 ppl and the hospital is the biggest around and they think that there shit dont stink but its the only choice we have around here

  • I'd travel to get to another hospital

    Answer by Gwenleona at 5:35 PM on Jun. 25, 2011

  • I think you need to try finding a different hospital bc those ppl sound like jerks...@ 9 1/2 weeks they should be able to hear a heart tone, and they can do an ultrasound and see how the baby is doing (that is when I had my ultrasound), I was able to see the baby and the heart beating.

  • They r jerks and even the spelists aeound here have there noses in the air
    ..and last night i was breathing through pain in and out slowly and the dr said that is why ur limbs r going numb that is a form of hyperventalating weather u think it is or not..... what else am i suppose to do...let me know other options here ur not suggesting anything
