I used to get them too...it was the only way that I knew that AF was coming...I would get the pains and within 2 days I would get AF...I usually used heat to help with the pain...a warm bath or a heating pad...hth

Hi ladies,
Yeah I used to get the leg pains too. THey were like my thighs used to become very very tight and that it was very heavy (kind of) to walk also. I started getting this pains couple of years ago. But since then I got pregnant and had a still born in dec 2004 and now I am pregnant(still waiting to go for the U/S). Anyways from what I have heard it is very common before AF. Heard it from couple of my other friends. they cant even workout.

I get the same achy feeling in my leg too but it's in the right leg only.  It's normal from what I've been told and I have 3 children.  I think I started noticing it before mensus about 5 or 6 years ago.  As for getting the leg pain but not your period can happen too.  I got the leg pain in July as normal a couple of wks before mensus was supposed to start and low and behold, went to the dr. for my yearly pap and was told a week later that I was pregnant.

I get the leg pains too, but I get it in my left leg so it is not uncommon.

I just saw your post to me re: B6.  I think the B complex your on should be ok.  In fact, B6 works better when you are getting all of your Bs.  I think the general rule is to start out with 50mg/day, but not to exceed 200mg/day.  Also, make sure you drink plenty of water b/c B vitamins are water soluble.  If you experience tingling in your fingers or toes then you should either stop taking it or reduce the amount.  From what I understand, it takes a while for any "real" damage to occur, that's why you should stop if you notice anything.  If you are concerned, then you may want to try the herb, Vitex (AKA: Chaste Tree Berry).  It is supposed to do the same thing as B6 (balance hormones), but it is slow acting.  I order the tincture from RedMoonHerbs.Com.  There are actually a lot of herbs that are supposed to help with fertility.  Let me know if you are interested. Sorry, I have no idea about your leg problem.

Thanks again regarding leg paing aches,,,,it's just nice to hear if others get this,,,my husband has to massage them all the time,,,,it's like i went on long hike and you wake up the next day and your achey (achy),,not pain, I shouldnt' have said pain,,,becasue it's not pain,,,it's more like sore muscles,,,

Oh and thanks for getting back to me in regards to the b complex,,,
I read the back and most of the b's I'm getting I think are only 5mg,,,not sure,,,and I think that is a low dose and I should be fine,,,I will get back to you if I decide on the other,,,
I will just keep trucking away with the b-complex..
My menses is due on the 30th,,,but I have every bit of pms like always,,,not looking forward,,,I'm headachey too,,,every symptom i get is like pregnancy, so I honestly can't do anything until it comes,,,,
I get headaches, sore bbs, swollen abdomen, cramping, drooly mouth(hahah) all of the above,,so that is all....
It's funny because I thought I knew exactly when I ovulate,,,but maybe I'm timing it all wrong,,I think in a couple of months more if nothing happens, I will purchase one of those ovulation kits that everyone uses,,,they sound useful enough,,,gosh I love this site,,,everyone is so helpful...take care all ladies and babydust to all!!!

Yes I get the leg pains too. But only since my MC 7 months ago. It's nice to know others get them and that if I do get them, it doesn't mean I'm not PG. Thanks.

guys. this is called restless leg syndrome. it's the creepy-crawly feeling in your leg. kinda like you gotta keep moving it to be comfy. it's freaky i know but now they have meds for it.
