If it is pain that radiates downwards it could be a sciatic pain. Wher there is pressure on the nerves. I have been having it especially at night.
My pain was not sciatic nerve. It radiated all the way down the front of my leg and lasted for days. My Dr. said that tums sometimes helps with leg pain and surprisingly it did work. I just also took it really easy because it was also worse for me at night.
I have pain in my lower back and in my hips when I lay down at night....I wake up with it to...maybe the baby is growing in my back..lol
this morning i mailed my dr., she said if my legs are swollen she asked me to come to hospital. She also suggested me to get a walk, to see if that could help.
