Question: severe buttock pain leg cramps back aches ..what to do pls suggest..

1 Answers
Answer: Sleep on your side with legs bent and a pillow between your knees supporting the whole length of your leg. This position will support the joints around your pelvis and hips. If this doesn’t help, experiment with pillows and cushions until you find something that suits you. Place a pillow under your bump to stop you rolling forward. Before your bump gets too big, try to "turn under" when turning in bed or turn over with your knees together and your buttocks squeezed. Put an extra layer of padding, such as a folded sleeping bag or quilt, above or below your hip joint, whichever best relieves your pain. Place a warmed wheat bag next to your hips. apply hot water bottle on your back pain and put legs in to warm water with little salt.

Answer: Hello dear As your uterus expands it can put pressure on certain nerves, causing painful spasms in your legs also the pressure your growing belly puts on blood vessels in your legs can disrupt circulation and cause cramps. Eat a healthy diet and a warm bath can relax you and remove pain in the calf area also u can do gentle exercise to help blood circulation. Reduce the salt intake to prevent fluid retention in the body. You can massage the cramped muscles with ice or cold compress to reduce pain.

Question: severe leg cramps..pls help
Answer: Hello! Legs pain/ cramps is quite normal in pregnancy. Stretching: It is important to stretch your muscles before your exercise and use them for long periods of time. However, stretching is also useful to help alleviate the cramp. Massage: This is often the most used method to alleviate a cramp and reduce the pain associated with it. Massaging the cramping muscle and sometimes massaging neighboring muscles helps take away the cramp. Add Heat: Heat can be applied to your cramping muscle using a heating pad, a microwaved heated cloth bag of rice, or some of the over-the-counter air-activated heating pads. Epsom Salt: A warm bath can often alleviate the cramp and pain, but an Epsom salt bath is usually a little more effective. This helps you relax overall and it helps relieve the tension in your muscles. Ice the Pain: You can wrap ice from the refrigerator or use an ice pack and apply to your cramping muscle. This cold often helps take away the pain associated with the cramping muscle. Combination: Stretching and then massaging the muscle with either a heating pad or ice pack often work together to collectively stop the cramping and alleviate the pain.
