I Felt Pain On The Right Side, The Right Leg Was Swollen, The Right Neck Was Cramped When She Was 7 Months Pregnant?
Good night, I am now 7 months pregnant, why do you all feel pain on the right side, the right leg is swollen, the right side of the neck also feels crampy, really, what is the trigger?
Swelling in several parts of the body during pregnancy is normal and is experienced by many other pregnant women. The swelling that occurs is due to hormonal changes in the body during pregnancy that trigger the body to retain salt (sodium) levels which also cause it to retain fluids. Swelling is most common in the legs because it follows the law of gravity, but there can also be swelling in other areas of the body such as the arms and face.
Feelings of pain in the right side of the body, neck pain and cramps are usually associated with swelling in the right leg which results in:
the body weight is heavier to the side that is swollen so that the posture when standing or sitting or resting becomes unbalanced and can cause muscle cramps or tense muscles, blood circulation in the swollen part of the body is not smooth / disturbed, varicose veins can occur blood clots. to know more for sure the condition you are experiencing, you should do a direct examination of the obstetrician to find out your current condition, whether there is something that could be dangerous or not, and perform routine pregnancy checks.
