    if you've got someone around at the time, get them to play with your feet. my aunt was v poorly in hospital and had this very badly - i loathe feet ( :puke: :puke: :puke: ) but massaging them and wiggling her toes were the only things that gave her any relief from it.

    I have been getting this too and it's horrible :x
    Do you have swollen feet and legs too?
    The best things I've found are reflexology, going for a walk round garden (even at 3am), massaging legs with cold shower on full blast- drying feet is a bit hard now!
    I'll be watching this post to see what others suggest too.
    Good luck X :hug:

    I get this! Especially when I'm trying to rest in the evenings. It's almost like someone's filled your legs with fleas....not itchy just really irritating. Unfortunately I've not found a solution to it yet.....I wonder though if it's got something to do with baby's position? Perhaps it's on some kind of nerve or something.

    Anyway I can sympathise with you completely......just think though, not too long to go unitl you get your body back!

    i got it pre pregnancy but use to use muscle rub etc and dont think we can ?

    sometimes i ;ay on the hard floor and it helps but due to the trapped nerve ive got that was mega painfull lol


    it even drove hubby made last night , i slept on the sofa for a bit but was so uncomfy , not that it helped being in bed ,


    the iea of walking round the garden at 3 am is NOT appealing lol i live in london and its like -3 at night at mo too !
