Ok ladies, I need some advice.

For the last week or so, I have had some majorly bad groin pain. It hurts so bad, I can barely walk sometimes. Most of the time I can walk OK though, but anytime I have to lift my right leg for anything (stairs, putting my feet up, changing my pants, ext) the pain is so bad it about knocks me down.

I am not a wussy for pain either - I think my pain tolerance is pretty high, but with this, no exaggeration - It's killing me and making me be able to nothing but lay on the couch at night.

Yesterday, I got to add hip pain to the mix too. It felt like my hips were dislocated. and it felt funny to walk. Today I am fine, but last night it was killing me.

Is there anything I can do to help these pains. I am doing Yoga and sleeping on my left side, but no relief. Any other ideas??

I can't remember what it's called, but here's a condition that has to do with pelvic separation that might be part of it. You should ask your doctor about it.

I have no real advice though, sorry!

Thanks - I googled Pelvic Separation, and got alot of hits on Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction (SPD). Reading the symptoms, it sounds exactly what I have been going through. I thought it was normal round ligament pain until I had the hip pain last night.

I see our specialist this Thursday after the follow-up u/s, so I will mention it to her and see what she has to say.

I hope the specialist can give you some tips on how to get some relief !!
that has got to be frustrating. It is so hard as it is to be comfortable when pregnant, start throwing ligament pains, sciatica, Pelvic Separation into the mix....and sheeeeesh !!!! not fun at all.....

omg yes I got that with my last pregnany, and I am 4 months post partum and still get it! not sure whats up with that. but most of the time it goes away right after birth, not sure what you can do until then, I know sleeping with a body pillow helps, keep your legs together when rolling over in bed, etc.... I also had the hip pain. oh get dressed sitting down so you arent putting pressure on just one leg, that kills too!
