Cramp Calves And Coccyx Sounds At 33 Weeks Gestation?
Hi, I’m 33w pregnant. Lately, cramps often develop in the calves, and a rattling in the tailbone, sometimes even pain like a pinch. Is it dangerous or not? Thanks
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Your condition can occur due to various things, both related and unrelated to your pregnancy. Among others are:
Impact of hormonal changes during pregnancy
The impact of changes in posture on pregnancy, especially when starting to enter trimesters 2 and 3
Poor nutrition is often found in pregnant women, such as lack of calcium, potassium and magnesium
Lack of fluids
Our advice, you should check with your obstetrician, to ascertain the tendency for symptoms whether caused by pregnancy or there are other conditions that cause it. With a direct examination, your doctor can ensure through a history, physical examination and possibly support if necessary, then you can find out the best tendencies and treatment.
Meanwhile, compress the painful area with warm compresses, consume folic acid and calcium supplements for pregnant women as recommended, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, reduce physical activity and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
