  • I thought the comments might help with hubby and his leg problems. Not really :/ he suffers badly, wakes up so often during the night due to leg discomfort. Dr visit coming up soon. Hope to get answers then

  • I had it to while pregnant and didn’t go away after birth until I went on medication but for the mean time its only pressure stocking that helped me.

  • My friend had this and her doctor told her to change a few lifestyles like avoid drinking coffee, soda, and other caffeinated beverages.
    Exercise every day, but stop within a couple of hours of bedtime so you don’t get too wound up to sleep.
    Get into a regular sleep routine. Go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, if you can. Before bed, relax with a warm bath or by snuggling up in bed with a good book.
    She found that doing these really helped and also when she did get woken by it the doctor told her to,
    Massage the legs.
    Apply a warm or cold compress to the leg muscles.
    Get up and walk or stretch her legs.
    Good luck hope these help you for the last few weeks of your pregnancy.

  • I have that and I also suffer with pain from muscle wastage and I have pressure stockings I put on when they are getting to me to much and this helps
