What do knots in legs mean?

This is my second pregnancy and I am experiencing knots in my legs. What does this mean and is it something to worry about? I had steel plates in my leg from August 2009 til Feb. 2010.

  • You may be low on potassium. I would start eating more bananas.

  • also drink a lot of water, I get them too. It helps me if I am more active during the day too. The days I sit more they seem to be worse. There is a stretch you can do before bed that can also be helpful. Stand about a foot and a half away from the wall and while keeping your feet flat on the floor lean on the wall for about 10 seconds then off for about 5. Do this a couple of times before bed! Hope they go away, I hate them!
