Bad leg muscle pain 12 weeks pregnant?
I started getting painful leg muscle pain yesterday afternoon. It came out of nowhere. I didnt exercise, didnt do anything. During the night the pain got worse and I feel like I cant walk up or down my stairs. I also have minor muscle pain in my upper arms. The pain in my legs is in the entire leg, but its more severe in the portion between my knee and top of the leg. It feels like I worked out on an elliptical for 8 hours straight. Im am definetely hydrated, I only dirnk water and lots of it. Im not sure what is causing this and should I be concerned? Thanks.

No it's not like charlie horse type pain, its just very tight, sore muscle pain. Like if you go running or work out for a long period of time.. it kind of feels like when you pull a muscle. But I havent done anything to cause a pulled muscle thats why im confused. I did call my doctor and I am waiting for a call back.

I had that with my dd, I took potassium supplements before bed and they went away, Also point your toes towards your knee and it will relieve the pain. eat lots of bananas!

I use to get muscle pain. My Dr told me Calcium. After about 3 days the Charlie horse cramps
went away and about 5 days the constant strain pain was gone.

try the calcium then, if you are allergic to potassium that is probably why you are getting leg cramps, the calcium might work though. Ask your Dr.
