... aches from thigh to my ankle, i cant keep it still, when I elevate it it doesnt help, ask my boyfriend to massage it and it doesnt help also, if I lay on my right side n put a pillow under my left leg it kinda help, when I sleep I keep tossing and turning just to get comfortable. Iv tried heating pad, tiger balm and bengay it kinda works but it comes back right away. When my left leg isnt in pain then its my right leg or my arms but its mostly on left leg. I just want to chop it off or get a hammer. I cant stand long or walk alot it hurts. Its been goin on for years and havent told my dr about it. I need help I want it to go away
Im 27, I have 3 kids a 7, 5 & 9 1/2 month old and a baby on the way due in october. My left leg?

Sometimes I have one of my older kids to sit on my upper leg in between upper leg and knee and it feels good but when they get off it comes back right away.
I first thought of blood clot so it is good your Dr says he doesnt think it is a blood clot. Never massage your lower legs when you are pregnant. You could dislodge a small clot and it could cause a stroke or pulmonary embolism. Actually, in nursing school, we were taught to never rub the calves of anyone for this reason. It sounds very much like sciatica, especially if it goes away when your kids sit on it, it probably takes the pressure of whatever is pressing on the nerve off. It could also be a vitamin or mineral deficiency. Do you take a prenatal vitamin supplement?
