  • I don't know, but you really should lay down on the floor and do some stretches, it could very well work out the kink ;)

  • I don't want to scare you and it could as well be something else, but I would honestly go to the dr if it doesn't get better my mom had a pain in her thigh that came and went and my grandma made her go to the dr and here to find out my mom had cervical cancer making her leg hurt she was in the first stage. I am not trying to scare you and it may be nothing, but I would ask a dr my mom also didn't have a pap in 17 years so that didn't help either. Hope it gets better

  • Thanks for your answers. I have a pap every year, but the charley horse thing might be right. i read up on it and it said hormonal imbalances can cause it and I do have hormone problems since having my girls. I think I will be making a Dr. appt. just to be safe. I was worried a blood clot maybe. Thanks. any more ideas?
