Swollen Feet And Painful Thighs At 33 Weeks’ Gestation?
Mlm … what is the reason why my thighs are sore at the age of 33 this week? Am I tired or what is it … please for a solution.
Hello Rika, Thank you for the question.
Swollen feet is a common complaint when a woman is pregnant. This is caused by pregnancy hormones which cause the body to store more fluids. Pressure on the pelvic area due to the larger uterus can also inhibit blood circulation, causing swelling of the legs. You can do the following:
raise your legs higher when sitting or prop your feet with pillows when sleeping to improve blood circulation Exercise regularly avoid sitting or standing for too long choose comfortable shoes reduce salt intake On the other hand, sore thighs can be caused by changes in body weight point due to the uterus enlarged, which can cause leg muscle tension. Weight gain during pregnancy also causes your legs to support more weight, which can cause muscle pain. In addition, thigh pain can also be caused by problems with the spinal cord, joint disorders, other circulatory disorders such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Whatever the cause, you should consult with your doctor first so you can ascertain the cause. You can rest the sore leg and apply warm compresses to the sore area. You can take paracetamol if the pain gets worse.
Hope this information is helpful.
