14 weeks. Siatic nerve pain

I'm 14 weeks today. The last 2 weeks I've been getting extreme pain with my siatic nerve in my legs. It gets so bad i can't walk. I talked to my doctor at my last appointment and she said that's nothing she can do, what home remedies do you all do for this? I don't want to end up on bed rest.

Argh, you poor thing!  Take Tylenol.  And try a heating pad.  My friend took one to work with her and says it helped.  The other thing to do---  if you can, is stretch.  I have sciatic nerve pain when I'm NOT pregnant (grrr) and stretching can help make it better.  The pinch may loosen as you stretch things.  Worth a try, right?  Hope baby shifts and it gets better.  good luck hon
