My name is Krystal,
I'm a first time mom. While I was pregnant I use to get this pinch like pain in my lower back on the right side. It would send the pain strait down my right leg and into my ankle. I thought it was my son sitting on a nerve. Well he's 7 months now and I still get that pinching pain and it still sends the pain down my leg and into my ankle. I won't feel it all the time, but it happens a lot. Has anyone else had this happen? Does anyone know what it is? And should I except to deal with this for the rest of my life? Thank you! :)

It could be a pinched nerve in your spine that has not healed.   Talk to your doctor about it.  I am presuming that you mentioned it while pregnant.  I have random swelling still and dd is 7 yrs old.  During pregnancy I had unexplained edema of my legs,ankles and feet.

Sounds like sciatica pain.

 I don't remember a pain like that. But I do have pain sometimes around my csection scar like if I pull a muscle or something in that area it hurts like heck.

I had sciatica pain when I was pregnant and this sounds like that's what it is with you. Once in a while I will still feel it, like maybe only a few times since having dd and she is 10 months. If you are feeling it really often then I would call your dr. You could also look into acupuncture, my mom swears by it!

When I was preg I had major hip pain. The chiropractor helps soooo much until I stopped going bc I have no time so it hurts occasionally.

Go to the chiropractor. It could really help. I have very bad back problems and it helps me. And it could be a pinched nerve which they could release with adjusting your back.

It's your sciatic nerve it will eventually get better, once your body re adjusts.
