Fitness newbie here (working a 10+ hour a day desk job) and I have a bit of back story (no pun intended) and a question.
I had my first baby 6 months ago. From the 2nd month of pregnancy on I struggled with what I thought was sciatica, however in spite of everything I was told, this did not go away after the baby was born (all 5 lbs of her!). Currently if I stand for any amount of time or try to exercise I feel nerve pain in my right hip that causes the outside of my right foot to go numb. Consequently I do not exercise and I go from sitting all day at my desk to sitting all day at home and I know that's not healthy.
My question is this: Is it safe for me to try and exercise and "walk it off" or is this something that sounds more serious? I have considered seeing a chiropractor to see if this may be a disc issue or if I'm just being a wimp but I don't know if that is the best option.
