I am currently 10 weeks pregnant and had been doing well until last week when my back went out and I couldn't walk. That seemed to resolve itself and now I have searing pain down the front of my legs and deep in my hips. I have a moderate bulging disc l5s1 with DDD and have been told that it isn't going to get better its going to get worse.
I am waiting on a physio appointment but as usual this all takes time and wait you must. I have a feeling it might be my si joint giving me bother as well as my bulging disc.
As you all know chronic pain is lonely and frustrating. That's really why I'm posting I'm used to the relapses and the pain now. It's the total lack of support from my family. People saying hurtful things mocking me that all I do is complain about a sore back. Your family are supposed to support you that's what you would think. The majority of the time they completely ignore that I am in pain. Like I don't matter I feel so isolated sometimes by this condition it really makes me depressed. I always get out of it and back being positive but today I'm finding it hard.
When you are pregnant and limping in pain you think someone would slow down if you went out together but instead they ignore it. I am thankful though my husband is a true gentleman and he listens and supports me so much.
Why don't people realise how much this takes over your life.I'm really scared how the next few months of pregnancy are going to go. I know I have to stay positive but its hard to. I feel so alone.
Sorry for the rant I know people have it worse off than me. Maybe it's just the hormones and I'm having a bad day. Would love to hear how anyone else is doing with this condition (bulging discs or si joint dysfunction).
