Vein disease: Female hormones, prolonged standing, prolonged sitting, pregnancy, weight lifting, heat, heredity can cause leg pain with venous insufficiency called reflux. Wearing prescription strength support stockings can help the symptoms until you can have ultrasound scan by a phlebologist: www.Phlebology.Org easy in office procedures to treat reflux. We know bcp can aggravate reflux but pregnancy can more.
