Curious if anyone here has had siatica. I have sharp pain in my glute/butt on left side and sometimes down into my leg. My nurse practitioner mentioned maybe it was siatica but never explained or confirmed. Anyone know what this could be? Its triggered when i get into the drivers side of my car, sit on the floor, or sometimes when im just walking

What can even be done for siatica?

I had surgery 9-11 for sciatica and am 12 weeks pregnant.

Most pregnant people's issue with the sciatic nerve will go away after the baby. Mine is for life even with surgery.

I have twinges on my right, have had it on occasion for years, every day since pregnant but it can be rather common in pregnancy. Such an awful pain, so sorry you have it for life StasisSmo. It drives me insane!

I'm 12 weeks, and my sciatica has been crazy! Went to the doctor and found out baby was chilling out way on my right side, so baby was pulling on my left, which is the side my sciatica was on. I was told to rotate warm and cold. I also found that sleeping on my left side has helped tremendously. Hope this helps!
