    Default Sciatic pain anyone?

    Just wondering if anybody else has experienced bad sciatic pain in pregnancy and labour and how you treated it.
    With my first as she engaged I had increasingly worse pains like shooting electricity down the legs, I couldnt sleep for 2-3 nights before the birth. I opted for an epidural mainly because of that. It was actually fine and the birth went really well, but as my labour was also quite quick, Im thinking for this one I might try to get by without the epi. But as the birth gets closer Im getting the sciatica again, last night I was rolling around on the kitchen floor screaming for a couple of minutes in agony, then when it passed I was fine!
    Anyone experienced this and had any suggestions other than an epi to get through it? I have phoned hospital physio and waiting for them to call me back. Will also ask midwife at next antenatal.

    I'm sorry, I don't have much of a solution but wanted to say that I'm experiencing the exact same issue. Not so much pain down my leg, but more deep inside my hip. It's agony for a few minutes, and then perfectly fine again.
    the only thing I've found that helps is a heat pack & a massage.
