2yrs on mirena (levonorgestrel) but have nausea tired and leg cramps little to no period last month. Usually my period is heavier, Could I be pregnant?

Almost 36w pregnant, nausea followed by vomiting, lower leg cramps, tummy tightening, and back pain... Plus constant heartburn. Labor? Flu?

The dr thinks im pregnant but to early no birth control leg cramps nausea gasy ureinate more cramps in vagina?

Possible: Urine and blood tests typically are positive around the time of the first missed period. Leg cramps aren't typically a sign of pregnancy, but nausea, needing to urinate more often, breast tenderness, and fatigue typically are. You should do a repeat pregnancy test in a few days to a week. If you don't want to be pregnant and aren't pregnant currently, birth control is a good idea. ...Read more

Anovulatory bleeding: Pregnancy is always on the list of possibilities when a woman has abnormal uterine bleeding or cycles. You may be having anovulatory cycles (cycle without producing an egg from the ovary). If a urine pregnancy test is negative, I would recommend evaluation by your gynecologist, and treatment will depend on the cause of the abnormal bleeding and your current short-term pregnancy goals. ...Read more

Leg pain I have leg cramps often, sometimes very painfull. One night I was up all night. About 4am I heard a pop and unberable pain for a few min. S the cramp didnot stop for 2 days.

Leg pain I have leg cramps often, sometimes very painfull. One night I was up all night. About 4am I heard a pop and unberable pain for a few min. S the cramp didnot stop for 2 days.

Leg: Leg cramps occur frequently and awaken many people. They are sometimes related to circulation problems, wearing high heeled shoes, spending a lot of time sitting and other activities that shorten the calf muscles. Doctors used to prescribe quinine for the cramps but fda no longer approves of this use. A paper in the new england journal of medicine about thirty years ago suggested leg stretches at bed-time. Stand up against the wall with one foot in front of the other and bend the front knee while keeping the back knee stiff. This stretches the gastrocnemius muscle in the back of the leg. I usually suggest calcium/magnesium tablets as well. If the cramps are in the front and back of the leg at the same time, I usually push hard on the cramped area to make the cramp stop. If you try to stretch one muscle out, the other uscle will cramp more. You may have popped some of the fibers with a severe cramp. The reason it lasted so long was that you may have had some bleeding into the muscle causing irritation. Depending on your age it also would be wise to see your doctor for blood work to check for inbalance of salts in your blood or abnormalities in calcium levels.
Good luck in resolving this really common and annoying problem. ...Read more
