Menstrual Cycle and leg numbness, weakness, pain

When I'm having my period I have been having severe pain, numbness and weakness in my legs. I don't have any abdominal cramping or back pain. It has got to the point where it is difficult to sal around, my legs buckle, give out, etc. I am 25 with a history of ovarian cysts and preterm delivery but am in great health, fit and active, I eat great and practice yoga almost daily. Nothing I've tried has helped and I finally called a doctor but they can't get me in for 2-3 weeks and since this only happens/affects me while I'm menstruating, that seems pointless. This is really troublesome, just curious if anyone else has experienced this or has any advice. Thanks.
