So for the last 4 days, my right leg from my back to my ankle is just one big cramp! I'm thinking it is sciatica because if I walk too much, my right side of my back and butt gets the sharpest pain ever that shoots from there through my hip to my thigh and so on. It literally takes my breath away and makes me cry out! But this butt/leg cramp just won't go away. I've been drinking non stop water, I even took nearly a two hour bath today with the jets on high....it's driving me crazy and I'm so uncomfortable. Especially when I try to sleep. I'm wondering if I should call my doctor if it doesn't go away soon? What would you do?

Sounds like Sciatica. Not much helps for me when this happens except to rest and take it easy for about a week.

Try heat. When I had that with one of my pregnancies, heat was the only thing that helped at all. It all went away when she was born and I haven't had it again with my other pregnancies (knock on wood). I couldn't even get up and down the exam tables. I hope it lets up for you.
