I'm currently 33 weeks pregnant and my pgp is so bad I can't walk, sleep do anything by myself. I have tried the painkillers, physio and acupuncture nothing has worked.
Has anyone else suffered this? And asked to be induced at 37 weeks?

You can push to be induced early. Look up NICE guidelines (I don't know what they say, but often have useful, common sense ideas)

Don't be shy in contacting GP and midwife about your pain level.
Do you have crutches to help get about?

Please please please go and see a chiropractor before you do anything. I was the same and a few sessions have helped so much I'm not housebound and can freely walk up stairs now. I feel for you and we shouldn't have to suffer with this!

I agree you shouldn't have to suffer with this, I have it myself and had it in my last pregnancy, but the last thing I would do would be to push to be induced early - the longer baby stays in the better the outcome (I had a 38 week baby who had stomach & jaundice issues)

I have been seeing a chiropractor which has helped immensely - also see your GP and explain your pain levels, they may prescribe you something safer but stronger.

I've been on crutches with spd since 15 weeks. I'm 37 weeks on Monday and have an appointment with the consultant to discuss induction. I'm not sure it's what I want but they are at least willing to discuss it.

Update. Saw the doc today at 37 weeks. No induction yet as baby is not far enough engaged, going back next week to check progress.
