hip pain, pins and needles in leg


When I wake up in the night to pee my leg has gone dead with pins and needles from the hip to my foot (right leg), and have noticed pain in right hip area when walking and putting weight on right leg, has anyone else had this.

I had similar pain in my first pregnancy but not until 32 weeks and not with the pins and needles so not sure if its the same thing, I suspect this is going to be a long uncomfortable pregnancy

I do take!! I toss and turn all night with horrible hip pain. Seems better when I am awake and moving around in the day. I haven't had the pins and needles though. my ob said its the hormones loosening our joints for labour unfortunately- he didn't give me any tips to help with the pain

I have a lot of back, side, and lower stomach pain. I'm not sure if this is similar to what you are experiencing, but when it starts up, it shoots pain down my right leg.

I actually had to stay in the hospital for a night, because I had crystals in my urine (step away from kidney stones) and the baby was on a sciatic nerve. I had no problems going to the bathroom, so I would have never known about the crystals from just the pain. I thought it was all sciatic nerve.

Hope you feel better soon!!!

Another one of pregnancies joys I guess. I must admit mine is definitely better after im up and moving around. I feel a lot lower already then I did with my daughter, I carried high with her right till the end, I suspect this will be contributing to my discomfort. Should be fun come 3rd trimester..not!

There are a couple possibilities to this one. How you are laying, could be cutting off circulation. Are you laying on your back, one particular side? If so, try changing position. You or baby or both could be pinching a nerve and can cause this or it could be a thing called restless leg syndrome that is common in pregnancy. RLS kind of feels tingly and sharp shooting pain that is mixed and sometimes can include muscle twitching. Sometimes movement like rubbing your legs or feet together, rotating your ankle joints or just walking around can improve this but unfortunately if it is RLS it usually comes back once you stop moving again and you'll just have to wait until the episode is over.

I try not to sleep on my back cause I know that's not good, I seem to have trouble when I sleep on my right but its hard to stay on the one side all night.
It was good most of the day but I had a couple of sharp random hip pains when my weight was on the right side, I read up on pelvic girdle pain and SPD and I wonder if its that but the pins and needles is definitely odd so perhaps you're onto something with the pinched nerve.

My mother has sciatic nerve pain, mostly on one side. It hurts her when she goes to stand up, there is a point somewhere between sitting and standing that causes pain and sometimes weakness because of how intense the pain is. She's lost weight so it's not as bad as it used to be, but it still bothers her some. I've heard that sciatic nerve pain is common in pregnancy so maybe that is it. Just talk to your doctor, they might be able to give you some stretches to do or something that might improve on it.
