Leg cramps, dizziness and weakness

Posted , 4 users are following.

For the past few months I’ve had horrible anxiety plus having it over having such bad leg cramps, weakness and both legs and dizziness when I stand up. I don’t know what’s causing it. I had a baby 4 months ago and had an epidural but my back doesn’t give me problems. It’s just what I listed above. And these symptoms are constant. What could this be? Has anyone else experienced this?

    I get leg twitches and fatigue so far have yet to recieve a definitive answer from anyone other than it might be anxiety related! Looking at other forums etc these seem to be quite common but my fear is always the very worst!

    You have just had a baby so get a blood test make sure iron, magnesium and vitamin d levels are all normal as this can cause cramps in muscles

    Did you give birth vaginally or via c-section? The reason i ask is because you may have a damaged or trapped nerve from your labor....its the single most common reason for women with nerve damage/entrapment in that region. The labor I had with our son was ungodly AWFUL before they finally stopped my labor to do a c-section. My left arm was in such agony that it hurt worse than contractions without drugs. I hope you feel better soon especially since you have a newborn!
