I had this - mine was sciatic nerve pain and bloody hell it hurts, so you have my every sympathy. My hip used to give way (most fun in labour when it did this...!) with a startling amount of pain.

Nearly there though xxx

Ah, this sounds familiar - I'm 18 weeks and have had shooting trapped nerve-type pain in same spot from lower back through bum and top of left leg for a week or so - thought I was just sleeping badly but I did wonder about sciatica. It keeps catching me unawares, like when I'm walking along normally and then yelp!

Anyone know what you do about this?!
