Re: weak legs during period!

Absolutely! I get weak in the legs all the time during my period (along with disabling cramps <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/frown.gif">) & what I have found to help is excersizing (although I know that's probably the last thing on your mind)- it helps the blood flow through the legs & gets the muscles to stop thier awful cramping- even a walk around the block is great.
Hope this helps <IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/round.gif">

<IMG SRC="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/smile.gif"> a lot of exercise (i bike) will get rid of cramps along with getting rid of the caffiene and salt.

Re: weak legs during period!

I do very often, in fact almost every time I get my period and awful cramps. It is a burning sensation from my pelvis all the way to my knees so severe that I can barely walk. I just usually take Midol or some other form of pain reliever, and lay with my legs propped up. Hope this helps.

Re: weak legs during period!

Glad to know I'm not the only one who gets the weak legs. Just like you, mostly my inner thighs and knees. It's the darnedest thing. Thanks for bringing it up--I thought I was the only one!

Though as an afterthought, I would like to know *why* it happens...
