    I'm having excruciating pain in my right leg from my knee down as well as swelling from my mid-thigh down. My toes feel cold as if there is no circulation but when I touch them they are no colder than my other toes.

    Called the on call OB and got no answer.. so I called my ER and I'm waiting on a call back from the nurse.

    It's definitely not muscular.. has anyone else had this? What was it? I'm scared. It hurts so badly

    I would say to just go in, don't wait for them to call you back. I know swelling can be a sign of preclampsia...

    Fx it's all good :hugs:

    Well that was a waste of time.. I'm still bawling my eyes out. They did an ultrasound of my leg to rule out dvt. The swellings gone but I'm still in so much pain I can barely think. They gave me tylenol and it did nothing..I dont even know what to do

    I'm super relieved that they aren't concerned but I'm so bent with pain and I know nothing can be done for it and it's just torture. Honestly the pain is so bad I wouldn't be able to do much more than lay on the couch. I can't put any weight on my right leg at all without taking a tumble.. it's excruciating. And I have a pretty damn high pain tolerance! But this is so much more than a leg cramp/pinched nerve.. it just really feels like something is very wrong. If I'm not in crazy pain then from my ankle down I feel a burning numbness..

    The only think I can liken it to is when my knees hurt when it's really cold or rainy. I know I'm only 20 but it feels... arthritic almost.

    I'd love to massage it but OH tried and I just ended up screaming.. it's unbearable to have even a light caress :(

    Could be septic arthritis?? That's pregnancy related. I had it in my knee when I was 11 weeks. Hospital gave me antibiotics and co codamal. What did the hospital say? Xx

    Hmm I'm going to have to look into that!

    This is what drives me nuts.. once they ruled out DVT, they treated me like I was an idiot and told me to eat a banana and take some more tylenol. When I objected and said a cramp wouldn't last 12 hours long and cause swelling they switched and said maybe the baby is sitting on a nerve. I'm fuming.. I called my OB for a follow up but it seems no one is grasping how much pain i'm in so I have to wait until Friday.

    ETA: I also don't see how nerve pain could cause swelling but what do I know.. it's only my body!
