I haven't posted here for a while. I'm looking for advice. In January 2011 after an mri I was diagnosed with 2 disc prolapses L4-L5 of the lower back. One being more severe than the other. They also said I had ddd.
Since then I did everything I could: physio, swimming, walking and pilates. On my last visit to the consultant he was very happy with my progress.
My life has been great. I even took up cycling, spinning and badminton. I rarely needed any pain meds.
I am now 12 weeks pregnant with our first baby. Things couldn't be any better. However, this last month or so I've noticed pain in my right hip. Not constant, niggling just. It has since got worse. I can't lie on that side. Sometimes when I take a step the pain is excruciating and it nearly puts me off balance. I do not have pain in my lower back but when I touch it, it is very tender.
What should I do?? With me being pregnant my options are limited. Do you guys think its the old discs playing up again.
