    Default Sore outer thighs when sleeping.... Help!!

    Hi everyone I am over 6 months pregnant with my second child.

    I am having severe outer thigh pain during the night. I use a maternity cushion and wedge but most nights I still get it. I just toss and turn until the pain is too much and then sleep sitting up ( not comfortable though ).

    I don't think it's that restless leg syndrom but I am sooo sleep deprived & tired. I'm sleeping sitting up most nights and starting to get a few more headaches.

    Is there anything I can do???

    Thanks ahead for any thoughts/suggestions x

    Hi there. I had exactly the same - highly recommend seeing an osteo and asking them to check / treat your sacrum (spelling?) it helped heaps. Magnesium tablets also did help. Good luck

    What is you mattress like?

    I found that a nice underlay (or a couple of doonas under the fitted sheet) helped a lot when I was pregnant with DD. This time, we forked out for a fairly pricey innerspring and memory foam mattress and it has been bliss - no more sore spots for me and DH doesn't wake me up whenever he rolls over anymore lol.

    I'll defiantly check out what the doctor says and possibly see a osteo/chiro. My mattress is pretty firm so I might try the blankets/ underlay idea also. Thanks ladies :-)

    Try using a foam roller before going to bed. Roll on your ITB for about 5-10 mins. It was the only thing that worked for me and eventually the pain went away. As a pp said I also was wearing a sacrum support band during the day which helped. A physio should be able to help you out. Good luck, that pain is agonising!

    Thanks for all the advice everyone. Doctor suggested I go to physio, I'm also going to get a couple of remedial massages too :-)

    Have been stretching before bed & using hot water bottles. Thought I might investigate some pregnancy yoga/pilates & might even buy a support band .

    You've all been so helpful, so hopefully relief is not too far away !!

    Interesting. I've still got a couple of months to go so will monitor it carefully.

    I get this too and I'm not pregnant, although I think it started either while pregnant or when we got a new mattress. We have a firm mattress as well and it feels like it's coming from my hips but the pain is upper thigh area.
