    Could you tell me a little about sciatica in pregnancy? What causes it? What makes it worse? What helps eliminate it? What can you do to keep it from flaring up? Once you get it, does it last the entire pregnancy? And why do you only get it on one side or the other? Mine began at 22 weeks. At first, it felt like just a burning sensation in the buttocks, but if I do much walking, I also get shooting pains down my leg.
