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

Varies: There are several possible causes, usually a detailed exam can determine the cause. The two most common causes are a sciatica (which is an irritation of a nerve in the back causing pain down the leg) and a tendinitis of the hip (known as tensor fascia lata syndrome). Thank you for the question. ...Read more

Legs burn when i lay down, can only get relief when i lay on my stomach. Very painful. Thighs are the worst but also hurts in my hips, butt, calves?

Nerve pain: Pain that starts in the thighs and radiates downward (neuropathic pain) most often is caused by compression of the nerve roots where the sensory nerve enters the spinal cord. The best thing to do is to visit a neurologist for an evaluation. This may involve either a ct scan or mri. But if there is compression, then you can discuss treatment options with the doctor. ...Read more

See Below: Sounds like a muscular injury. It's always difficult to tell without an exam, but if you stop the tennis for a bit, it should improve. If it does not, you need to be examined. ...Read more
