Pregnant, weakness in thighs, lower back pain, leg weakness, sciatic pain. Treatment?

I am 22 weeks pregnant, and for the past week or two I have had transient weakness in my thighs. I have also had moderate to severe lower back aches, mostly after sitting for too long. This morning I woke up and the leg weakness had returned. I have experienced sciatic pain in the LLE this pregnancy, but the weakness is bilateral. I have not experienced weakness in other muscles.

Thanks for writing to us.
The weakness in the muscles that you are having is likely to be related to a muscle weakness due to nerve compression. This might imp[rove on improvising your posture and taking methylcobalamin supplements.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
