6 weeks 5 days pregnant. Having horrible hip and leg pain. Hurts to walk or even sit down. What should I do?

6 weeks 5 days pregnant. Having horrible hip and leg pain. Hurts to walk or even sit down. What should I do?

Something not right: Being 6-7 wks pregnant should not be causing horrible pain in hip/leg. Pregnancy can increase risk of blood clot in you leg, but that is usual not horribly painful. Thus, something is not right--avascular necrosis of hip joint? Bursitis, infection in joint? It is difficult to tell what you have, but definitely not normal. So, consult doc asap. Good luck. ...Read more

Can having a hypertonic pelvic floor cause leg pain in both legs? Pain from the hips all the way down each leg to the ankle?

Can having a hypertonic pelvic floor cause leg pain in both legs? Pain from the hips all the way down each leg to the ankle?

Yes it can: Pelvic floor is a highway for nerves that supply the legs. Common problems include piriformis spasm that causes a sciatica irritation down the posterior leg and buttock. And the SI joint can rotate causing severe pain in posterior buttock or groin area and anterior thigh. Get examined by a PMR doc, ob-gyn or orthopoedist who,is familiar with this exam and treatment options. ...Read more

In many patients, certain positions can cause increased irritation of the pinched nerve, which can lead to increased pain. See a physician for further evaluation/treatment if symptoms persist. ...Read more

Can a colonoscopy procedure cause severe hip and leg pain?

Can a colonoscopy procedure cause severe hip and leg pain?

Unlikely, but...: Conceivably, an abscess in the pelvis can cause your symptoms, but very unlikely to be caused by a colonoscopy, more likely found by it. If you are concerned, a ct of the abdomen/pelvis may be indicated, especially if you are having fevers and had diverticulosis on your colonoscopy, but let your doctor know this is going on. ...Read more

I have hip and leg pain for a couple of months, especially in the morning, I have an hour long commute to and from work, i'm 54 and in menopause, ?

Exercise: It's impossible to say where your pain is coming from without an examination but it's usually musculoskeletal. Long commutes are difficult on the body and the body tends to complain if it's not getting proper exercise and stretching. There is also a condition called piriformis syndrome which acts like sciatica, pain in hip and buttock radiating down leg. This responds to exercise too. Y. ...Read more
