Pain Pills@23 Weeks?

I will be 23 weeks on Wednesday, all Yesterday my legs ached badly and last night I had such a hard time getting to sleep. I've had sciatica in my right leg for a while now and now it almost feels like it is in bot legs unless the other is something else, I have been taking tylenol and it is not helping. I called the doctor office and the nurse said they may be able to give me a pain pill, has anyone ever heard of this and if so has it worked? It seems too early for my legs to ache this bad?

Re: Pain Pills@23 Weeks?

My doctor actually sent me to Physical Therapy when my sciatic nerves acted up. I had it on the left and right and I was told that the reason is because the muscles are weak and can't pull away from the nerve. I can't stand for more than 30 minutes at a time and another girl i know is the opposite and can't sit for long.
They put me on an exercise ball and had different types of exercises to teach me how to sit/stand, it's comparable to Pilates. Ask your doc if you can do a pregnacy pilates workout.

Oh and i was only 17weeks when mine acted up.
