Painfull groin area in pregnancy
Hi

I am now 21w2d pregnant and for the last 2 months or so I have had this absolutely agonising pain in my groin area, My gynea says its just a ligament. It is extremely painfull and sometimes I cant even walk, cross my legs or lift my legs to put on my pants. It seems to just be getting worse - it actually feels like a fire burning from my groin down my thigh.

When I sleep it also gets so bad that I cant turn over without being in total pain.

Please can anyone offer some advise on how to ease this pain and discomfort. Its almost so bad that I cant enjoy my pregnancy

Perhaps a physiotherapist could help.
