  • if it is unbearable yes call your dr.. most offices can even just take you there instead of sending you to the hospital..

  • The pain has started to spread down my leg now... All I can do around here is go to the ER ...

  • First, ask yourself

    Is this gas?
    Is it happening only with certain movement/activities?
    Could this be ligament pain?

    If you can't identify what the pain is and it really is that bad, then get in touch with your care provider. Just take a minute to de-freakout and analyze :)

  • It is definitely not gas, and the only thing that feels better is not moving at all. It hurts just sitting here at my computer. I sound like such a baby... It is just so painful.
    I am hoping it is just my ligaments stretching...

  • the one time I had that kind of pain it was associaed with placenta abruption. I'd def go to the ER and/ or call your doctor

  • It could also be your kidneys like a kidney infaction or stones. I get them all the time and causes so much pain from my lower back all the way down my legs.

  • Thank you all. I woke up this morning feeling a little better. I am going to see my DR on Monday so hopefully I can make it until then.
