It could be from standing but it is hard to say without examining you. If it is in your leg, you can probably wait till you see your doctor again. If it is in your calf, a leg clot is a possibility and you should have it looked at straight away.

This can be any of the following:

1. Round ligament pain ...which radiates down the leg & is normal, responds well to panado or stopyne.This can be due to strtching of womb in pregnancy and also be due to sexual intercourse although this does not mean you should stop having sex.
2. Ruptured ovarian cyst also responds well to analgesics but if unbearable should see your gynae.
3. Uterine irritation (prem labour, abrptio placentae (separeted placenta),,,which is often coupled by show or vaginal bleeding & is severely painful warrents immediate doc consult.
