Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
Stiff complaints that you feel in the limbs is caused by disorders of the nerves found in the spine. Disruption of these nerves in pregnant women due to weight gain thereby increasing the burden of the spine. The nerves in your spine may experience pinched nerves as a result.
You should consult a neurologist. The doctor will conduct medical interviews, physical examinations and safe support for pregnant women. The doctor will also provide safe drug therapy for pregnant women if needed. The doctor will also consult your problem with a medical rehab doctor for physiotherapy.
Meanwhile, you can compress with a cold compress on the area of the spine that feels pain. Cold compress will also help reduce the pain that appears. Routinely stretch muscles every time. You can also give a light massage to areas that are painful and stiff.
Thus hopefully useful.
