Question:Hi... I'm 18 weeks now, left side back pain, it's very horrible and leg cramps also. Not able to sleep at night... Please suggest

But just because it's to be expected, doesn't make it easy to deal with. Applying a hot pack to your sore spots may soothe muscles and ease pain, as can a massage. Ask your partner for a back massage. Additionally, if you're sleeping on your back or find yourself tossing and turning at night, your resting position may be to blame for back pain. Try sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees to ease any spinal tension and promote proper alignment. it's important to know when your back pain warrants medical attention. If your discomfort is consistent and self-care doesn't help much, discuss it with your doctor at your next appointment. If the pain is severe or accompanied by vaginal bleeding or discharge, contact your gynae immediately. Dull pain in the lower back may indicate pre-term labor, which calls for immediate care.

Question:Plzz suggest me doc my leg cramps become so much not able to walk
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. The weight of your growing uterus can push on the sciatic nerve and cause pain to run down the back of your leg. It could also just be leg cramps (most common in the third trimester) — but it could also be something more severe, like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or uterine fibroids, so please inform this to your gynecologist. You can relieve it to some extent by following the below steps. Stretch your calf muscles immediately by straightening your leg, heel first, and gently flexing your toes back toward your shins. (Don't point your toes while stretching. After you stretch, massage the muscle or warm it with a hot water bottle to relax the tissue. Take care.
