For the past week or so now, I’ve had horrible lower back pain at night. Doesn’t matter if I sleep on my left side, my right side or my back, it doesn’t go away.
The past two days, I’ve noticed pain in my front pelvic area when I get up from sitting or when I’m walking.
I also have an increased sense of heaviness in my pelvis that makes me wonder if my little man has started dropping?
Last night I had a bath and did a few exercises that my Physiotherapist recommended. NOTHING seemed to help. I was just as sore when I got in the bath as I was when I got out. The water was soothing, but didn’t take the aches away.
I’ve also been confused as to whether I have mild cramping or if that’s just the pelvic muscles being sore? Maybe it’s just that constant dull ache in my lower back reminds me of pre-period cramps?
Is this pelvic girdle pain? Does anyone have any experience or tips to alleviate the symptoms?
