get them?

Strange question I know but my AF has just arrived and once again I'm starting to get the horrible back ache and pains down the front of my legs.

The back pains I reckon are quite normal but the leg ones. Hmmm.

Anyone else get leg pains?

Why the legs though?

Back and stomach I can almost understand but the legs?
I'm going for the paracetamol now

Damned if I know! But I do get pains there. Dull achey ones

I used to get them from the middle of my back to my knees. I'd be in agony for the first 3 days of my period. But since having my ds I now only get the occasional twinge. I once read a medical remedies book(one of those pocket things!) at misdee's home which said the only way to get rid of the pains is to have a baby!!! PMSL!!
