Is that possible?
All of a sudden my upper leg & inner thigh just really started to hurt.

It feels really tight and very painful!
when I used to get my period thats where my cramps would be and in my pelvic area.

sorry if this is a stupid question

I get leg pain with my periods too, I thought I was the only one! haha.

But when I was in labor, the contractions were no where near my legs.

Cramping in your upper leg and inner thigh can be caused by tightness in your Iliopsoas muscle. It goes from your inner/upper thigh in the groin area and comes up into your lower gut. When you bloat, it can cause it to spasm and tighten. Try putting your feet together and forming a diamond with your legs and pushing your knees down towards the floor. It will help to stretch out the muscle and can provided some relief.
