I am 24 weeks pregnant and am having excruciating pain deep in my left hip/buttock, to the immediate left of my pelvis and backbone. It hurts when I walk, and seems aggravated the most by workouts so I reluctantly stopped this week. Now its to the point that it hurts when I even get out of bed! Anything where I flex or bend at the hips hurts. I whipped out my old anatomy books, and the point of pain seems to be the piriformis muscle, or at least around it. I don't have any of the burning and tingling sensations of sciatica. Just plain old pain. The hip feels like its grinding. Does anyone have any experience with this? Do any of you know any remedies or relief I can use until my appointment with my chiropractor? I am MISERABLE!
