Very achey lower back, legs and feet(1 Post)
Does anyone have any ideas what could be causing this? It has been getting worse over the course of this week but today I have been in quite a bit of pain.
My feet are very achy and uncomfortable to walk on, they do not get better the more I move. I only wear comfortable shoes, and in fact this week I think I have only worn my trainers.
My legs are heavy and achy, makes no difference whether I am up and moving or sitting down, it is a constant dull ache.
My lower back has a pulsing ache, feels quite good to stretch but doesn't actually help it in any way. Again doesnt seem to make a difference whether I move or sit still.
For context I am 28, gave birth seven months ago to DD, do yoga and Pilates as exercise and haven't changed anything recently.
Google keeps bringing up sciatica but I thought that would be a sharp and shooting pain?
I am going to take painkillers and get a hot water bottle, but I'm worried it's a symptom of something nasty.
