Period Cramps in Thighs?

Hey everybody

I was just wondering if anybody else gets cramps in their thighs during their period? I hardly ever get stomach cramps, but a cpl days before my period, I get horrible cramps mainly in my lower back and and my thighs (the front side) and sometimes goes to my lower legs. They go away within the first day after I start. Nobody I know gets thigh cramps, just curious about anyone here.....
Thanks

OH thats me!! I mention it under the post I think is called "what kind of leg pain?" It radiates down the front of my thigh, before and during my cycle.

Re: Period Cramps in Thighs?

I used to get them (years ago).. believe it or not, when I was in high school (I'm 33 now). We had to take typing class and the first day of my period i could hardly sit down in that class from the pain doing down my thighs. I haven't had them in years (got on birth control and after went off, no more problems).

Re: Period Cramps in Thighs?

Before birth control I used to get pains shooting down my legs and then my ankles would just ache. Once I started my period though, that part of the pain would go away. Still had the lower back pain though for the first two days of my period.

Re: Period Cramps in Thighs?

I don't know if you are talking about pain radiating from the stomach and back or something else.
I get terrible burning aching legs before during or after a period. My Gynae said its the hormones. I think its the hormones spilling down the legs.
I don't know if its like someone with kidney failure, the blood isn't cleaned properly and causes burning in the legs by the toxins emptying into the blood stream there.
Maybe in us its the excess hormones splilling from the uterus/ovaries into the legs???? Thats how Ive thought of it. My Gynae said there isn't really anything you can do.

Wow, I cant believe Im not the only one lol. Seriously, everyone I have talked to looks at me like Im crazy. Yeah, its just this horrible throbbing aching pain in my thighs. But like I said before, I hardly get any cramps in my stomach. Weird how our bodies work!

Re: Period Cramps in Thighs?

I always got cramps in my thighs too. So when I had kids, that is where I felt my labor the worst. I had hubby rub my legs during contractions!
