Why does it hurt so bad when I stand up?

My back and side hurts if I sat for a long time but when I stand up I start hurting really bad. Plus my stomach is so tight. should I call the doctor?

I'm already on medicine for the pains in my legs.

  • I would have to say its just the way the baby is laying... But you can and there is nothing wrong with calling you OBGYN to ask and be sure... It will make you fell better :o) With my son I had alot of back and leg pain... he was laying on a nerve :o) Lucky me! It got better, but only after alot of left side laying and water :o) Just call to be sure... It wont hurt and thats why you are paying them :o)

  • I think you need to call your doctor. I mean, it could be something simple but it may be more. You'll never know, till you talk to a professional. Goood luck, hun. I hope everything is okay.
