Question about sciatic nerve pain

Posted by on Aug. 1, 2013 at 10:58 PM

For the last few days, one or both of my legs start hurting for no reason. The pain runs from hip to about mid-calf. I know that the sciatic nerve can cause this. So my question is this.....

For those who have dealt with sciatic nerve pain, will you describe what it feels like? And how early did it show upin your pregnancy? I'm 11 weeks tomorrow.

Mine didn't really start until 24/26 weeks. It felt like a sharp pain shooting down my hip/leg

Made a heating pad with a tall sock filled it half way with rice(uncooked) and would put it on the hip that was hurting once it started to cool down dh wouldassage the area for 15 mins then do the rice sock again. Only way I can sleep otherwise it hurts touch 38 wks now

Mine is just like a dull ache from hip to calf. That's why I was wondering if it could be the sciatic.

13wks or so with my son. A constant pain with periodic sharp shooting pains from my hip to buttock on the right side, sometimes causing my leg not to get the message from my brain to move (while walking). With this baby I'm 20wks and I just have the 'constant' pain that comes and goes. But not the other stuff.

Im 15 wks and have been experiencing it bad in my left buttock and leg. My midwife confirmed my baby is on the left side and laying on nerves. Its been happening since wk 12.

Thankfully my leg pain isn't that bad. Glad yours isn't constant. :)
