Occasional leg pain after delivering child. Any ideas? Have fibromyalgia

I have had an aching in my front left leg, thigh area for nearly 2 years now. The only time I can really remember it starting was after I had a daughter 2 years ago in December but it could have been before that?? There is nothing which I can identify bringing it on and nothing eases it either. I can go a copld of days without having it then may have it on and off for days? Any ideas? I have been diagnosed with fibromyligia about 6 months ago but I dont really think it is anything to do with that as it has been going on so long. Thanks you

Thanks for writing to us.
Pain in the front of the leg can be related to a decreased serum calcium levels which are commonly seen after a pregnancy and a period of lactation. You need to add adequate calcium and vitamin D 3 supplements to your diet along with vitamin B complex to avoid these symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
