Progesterone levels before my period
Could a rise in progesterone levels just before my period be causing sensations of feeling unable to walk?
I'm a 23 year old with a 2 year old son. When I was younger I suffered lower back pain, sometimes I had to take weeks off work and college. When I got to the age of 20 my back pain was fine for a while, then when I fell pregnant I got sciatica and could hardly walk. After I had my son the backpain left me as quickly as it came. I didn't have a problem until about a year ago, if my periods are late, for about a week before I come on, get feelings of aching pain in my lower back. It travels down my legs and even my ankles hurt.
I came on this morning and was ok when I woke up but by the afternoon I could hardly walk. Its like my legs won't work. I feel weak and unable to stand up. My sister has just been diagnosed with scoliosis. As I have a son to look after and a job which involves standing up for hours on end, what is this condition and what can I do because it is affecting my ability to perform day to day activities? Please help.
