I'd Rather Give Birth...

Not that I know what it feels like but this sciatica or whatever it is, is freakin' killing.  I'm going to ask the chiropractor again tonight why he thinks it is not sciatica.  I'm uncomfortable whether I sit, stand or walk.  Luckily, no problems sleeping but I have been putting a pillow between my knees.

It's a pinching, burning, stinging and cramping pain that moves from my lower back to my hip and now all the way the bottom of my foot.  I can't take a normal step because it hurts my hip to do so.  So I've been keeping my leg as straight as I can when walking.  I do not know what else it COULD be.

I was supposed to go to hot yoga tonight but I'm not going to.  I'm taking Advil every 4 hours but I don't even think it's helping.

I've only done one day of the Jillian Michaels challenge.  I hate not being able to be active but it is what it is. 


  1. Oh Rachel this sounds terrible! I hope you feel better very soon!

  2. Oh boy!im so sorry you're in so much pain! I hope they can figure it out for you, and you can start feeling better!

  3. At least when you give birth you can get an epidural! Hope you're feeling better soon, Rachel. I'm SO impressed and proud of you for running the half-marathon. You're awesome!
