Hi ladies! 32.5 wks, FTM here. For the last 2 months baby boy has been pinching a nerve in my leg that makes the whole front of my left thigh numb...actually it feels like it's been shot up with Novocaine -- like I can feel pressure but not sensation. I've cleared it with my OB and a healthcare nurse that it it nothing more serious which is good, HOWEVER now the last 2 weeks the numbness has turned into constant burning pain. It feels like I have a seriously raw sunburn -- itching, burning, throbbing -- in my left thigh. It doesn't matter if I sit or stand -- the pain is there. I haven't had this anywhere else (like the typical sciatica). I plan to discuss the change w my OB when I see her this week.
Can anyone suggest any home remedies? I work 8 hours a day, so please take that into consideration!
I have been having bad sciatica and went to a physical therapist which helped me tremendously! The only thing that will make it go away completely is baby being born. But they can show you stretches that help.
