My personality demands that I question things. Being a senior level support person in my job I am constantly faced with an issue that everyone else has said "can't be fixed". So why is it that when confronted with chronic pain during this pregnancy I have chosen to accept it rather than fix it. I'll tell you why, because I am like a fish out of water with pregnancy. My sciatic nerve has been pinched for over 6 months which means my hips have hurt, I walk funny and putting jeans on every morning is comical. I happened to mention this mishap in my birthing classes and was immediately told well why don't you just fix it. Hmmmm, what a novel idea. Why aren't doctors told how you can fix things like this. My doctor (which I have since transferred from because of answers like this) told me to just deal with it and if it gets too bad take Tylenol. I have now been to the chiropractor twice and pain is gone, yep you read that right gone. It almost makes me sad that I have walked around hurt for so long and it took this man 15 minutes to "fix" me. Now keep in mind it came with a price, my butt is so bruised right now from the nerve work but I will take bruise any day over joint pain.
