hi i dont know if this helps anyone but i came across some helpful advice for spd last week...
since being about 12 weeks pregnant ive been suffering with really bad spd to the point where im now on crutches and have been unable to get up and down stairs (my partner had to bring microwave up so i can make something to eat whilst he's at work).
last week i was looking on the internet for something to help with the pain as tablets from the docs dont seem to help and the only ones that do work seem to affect the baby and i found a bit about arnica tablets and cream helping with the pain so i got my partner to pick some up at the weekend to try, i have been taking the 6c tablets a couple of times a day and putting the cream on when it starts to hurt and putting the cooling gel on a night before i go to bed, since using them the pain has been more manageable it still hurts but am able to walk about a lot easyer and am able to go up and down stairs without crying lol
anyway hope this helps xx
