Pregnant strained a ligament in lower abdomen while doing yoga. Painful to stand and walk. Any treatment other than paracetamol?

Hi I m 25 weeks pregnant and strained a ligament in my lower right abdomen / groin / leg at pregnancy yoga 16 days ago. I ve been checked by my GP and I m now waiting for my physio appointment to come through and trying to take it easy but I ve been in a huge amount of pain since yesterday evening. it hurts really badly to walk and stand, and the only ease i get is if i recline on my left with a pillow between my legs. is there anything else I can be doing other than paracetamol to ease the pain? maybe ice or heat?

Welcome to HCM form

You can apply hot packs in between legs and apply analgesic ointment locally

Elevate the leg while sleeping and do not move too much , take bed rest

It is better to consult an ortho surgeon who can guide for proper physiotherapy
