    Question Shooting pains in groin - second trimester?

    How do you relieve this awful stabbing, shooting, burning, pinch nerve type pain in my groin around the pubic bone?

    I've tried stretches, walking, massage, chiro, physio etc and sometimes it eases, but it seems to be getting worse and worse the more my belly grows .

    Thought I'd try some gentle water walking or hydrotherapy too?

    It's so so painful!!

    Google symphysis pubis dysfunction, does that sound like your symptoms? I had it, and its not fun.

    Yes I have SPD... but I still can't find any way to ease the pain and its mainly the pinch nerve feeling that does my head in, even when I'm sitting or lying still the nerve pain is never ending... .

    I've just recently wearing src pregnancy shorts and omg!!! Where I was struggling to walk before, my pain is now minimal. I would highly recommend them. They are pricey, however I think some health funds provide a rebate.

    I find sitting on an ice pack wrapped in a towel helps with the ligament pains associated with SPD/PGP. The physio told me to use heat packs if it's a more muscular pain, in particular around the hips. As long as you keep them away from your belly it's a safe way to treat the pain.

    Just don't sleep with ice on the area. You can do yourself damage that way. I think 10 minutes is about the recommended length of time for icing an inflammation.

    Keep your legs together as much as possible - rolling over in bed, getting dressed, getting in/out of the car. I used to sit on an ice pack when I got home from work, and had a lot of warm baths. I would also recommend that you see a physio. The pain was gone once DS was born.
