As the title says.
Does anyone not pregnant suffer from it.
I injured my back somehow ending up with a prolapsed disk in my L5 resulting in it sitting on the nerve running down my right leg.
How ever my back is not painful any longer but my leg still is. (3months now)
Which makes me wonder if it's sciatic nerve pain. I am on 300mg lyrica twice a day but makes no difference to the pain.

If it is sciatica, you could try laying down with a tennis ball under your bum and roll it around on your butt cheek. Sounds odd, but its just the right size to get into the muscle that compresses the sciatic nerve. You will feel it when you hit it, and then just keep the ball there for a few moments then roll around on it again, then hit on it again. It should help loosen it up
No advice on whether it is or isnt your sciatic, but this should help if it is

I used to get a lot of sciatic pain (before AND during this pregnancy), and my chiropractor has sorted it out. I hardly get it anymore now that I get regular adjustments, I'd definitely recommend it!

i had it with both my pregnancies. with my second right up untill i gave birth. i was in agony for the last half of that pregnancy, could not make any sudden movements, walked with a limp. it hurt mid back all the way down to my calf. i got told there is not much i can do besides heat packs and to just ride it out. DH usd to give me the odd massage which felt nice but didnt shift the pain.
i have not had the pain since giving birth 9mths ago.
i feel for you, its horrible. gosh, i so dont miss being pregnant.

I had it during pregnancy, then again recently after a big weekend in the garden. Like you my pain was almost entirely isolated to my leg.
I used lots and lots of heat packs and rested like crazy; after about a week it went away, but I'm quite sure I haven't seen the last of it. If it becomes an ongoing thing I'll see a physiotherapist (I wouldn't go near a chiropractor for love or money).
Nasty stuff, I'm sorry you're going through it
