Why Do My Legs Ache Every Night?

Many people experience occasional aches and pains in their legs, but for some, the pain is more constant. This type of leg pain is often worse at night, making it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. There are many possible causes of this type of leg pain, including orthopedic problems, poor circulation, and nerve damage. 

If you’re struggling with nightly leg pain, talk to your doctor to discuss possible causes and treatment options. In some cases, simply changing to an orthopedic mattress can provide relief by improving circulation and alleviating pressure on the nerves. With proper treatment, you can find relief from your nightly leg pain and get the restful sleep you need.

If you’re plagued by leg aches at night, poor posture during the day may be to blame. Sitting or standing for long periods of time can cause your muscles to tighten and your joints to become inflamed, leading to pain when you try to relax at night. To improve your posture and reduce leg pain, start by paying attention to how you sit and stand. 

Make sure your back is straight and your shoulders are relaxed. Take breaks often to walk around and stretch your legs. And when you’re lying down, prop up your legs with a pillow to avoid putting pressure on your lower back. With a little effort, you can improve your posture and find relief from those pesky leg aches.
