Has anyone else been driven crazy with the pain and frustration of Pubis Symphasis Dysfunction (PSD)???
This is my fourth pregnancy and I had PSD with my last pregnancy from 22 weeks onwards, it was just an annoying ache at first but each week got steadily more painful until I could hardly walk. To get anything from the shop, I had to drive my 16 yr old to the shop, pass him a small list of goodies to get while I waited in the car, I simply could not walk. By the last eight weeks I was in so much pain I was practically house bound and it looks like this pregnancy is going the same way, PSD started at 12 weeks this time, I am nearly 23 weeks along and am already finding walking to be quite painful. I have found there is not a lot of information on the subject and definately no sympathy, it is very hard to explain it to people and they don't realise how agonising it can be. Even medical staff don't seem all to fussed about it and just fob you off, I found the pain towards the end unbearable and ended up in tears most of the time, I just think that there should be more support and information out there for this debilitating condition.
Anyway sorry to carry on, just wanted to know if anyone has any hints or tips on how to cope.
