  • are you pregnant? because that makes a big difference. if you are pregnant, its probably your muscles stretching, if youre not it could be something else

  • im assuming your pregnant since you posted this in the pregnancy section. So yes if you are then it could just be stretching muscles and ligaments.

  • Like some other posters have said, I believe it could be round liagament pain (from baby growing and stretching the uterus) or possible pre-eclampsia. At least give your doc a heads up. I hope you feel better!
