    When i get up for my 4 pees a night it feels like the bloods been pooling in my legs, it can be quite sore. As im only really asleep for 1.5-2 hrs at a time its quite worrying. In the end last night i had 4 pillows propping my legs up, not really that comfortable...

    Them sexy compression socks should work though??

    Does anyone else get this? I don't wanna go to the doc if its nothing serious but i've been getting today aswell!

    I don't want to get varicous viens or worse =[

    My legs feel weak when I get up to go to the bathroom. Is this what you are talking about?

    I slowly roll out of bed, and find the step stool that is beside our bed, then gradually bring my other leg over to find the step stool (our bed is 3 feet above ground). I often grip the bed to make sure my legs will support me.

    Yes i've been getting this last couple weeks too. Legs can go into cramp really easily and pain in my knee's bad too. But after I raise them with some pillows it's almost as if you feel the blood draining back down the legs and the pain eases.
