Research Could Stop Pelvic Pain For Mums
11:56am 28th July 2014
A Cornish mum-to-be tells Pirate FM she is pleased ground breaking research could bring her pain to an end.
Seventy percent of women get pelvic girdle pain when they are expecting.
Sometimes it can be so bad you can't even walk upstairs and end up in wheelchairs.
Now a study at Treliske is looking at better ways of treating it.
Becky Dye lives in St Eval, she said: "You are having to rest up a lot more than you would normally, my job is quite active so it took an affect there where I couldn't do as much as I wanted to, and I've got animals too so I'm quite active out and about so it's just sort of managing it.
"During the day you just crack on with it, you think you're ok, then during the evening you sit down and realise oh my god I'm so not, and sleeping becomes really difficult because you've got so much pain in your pelvis and it's down in your legs."
Lee Cameron is heading up the study, he said: "Many everyday activities can cause pain, such as walking, climbing up and down stairs, washing and dressing, and sometimes can confine them to a wheelchair because their symptoms have become so painful.
"Because they're in so much discomfort and have difficulty mobilising and completing general activities, they're also unable to attend their place of employment and there is quite a high rate of work absences related to this."11:56am 28th July 2014
