On process of miscarriage, had a spell of continuous intense pain in thigh. Cause?

I am in the process of completing a natural miscarriage . A horrible pain in the top of my right thigh woke me out of a deep sleep and has not stopped for hours. It is extremely painful, but seems odd given that my dr thinks I ve already passed most of the tissue and because I have minimal pelvic/uterine cramping now. What could be causing this pain?

Pain radiating to the thighs usually occurs as the cervix dilates to pass out the uterine contents. As you have neared completion of expulsion of products, dilatation of cervix is not needed now. Other possible causes of this pain could be local blood clotting, muscular spasm or referred pain. The exact cause can be deduced only through a proper clinical examination and blood tests. Meanwhile, please do not stress that limb, free any tight clothing and take simple analgesics. Hope this helps.
