Sore legs sorry its long

Hi, i have ibs, i have sore legs the pain is at the top where my leg crease is, it is mostly on the left (but the right hurts too ) i mentioned it to my doctor who said it was probably from straining as i was very constipated and was given meds called laxido, but this last week it has been more constant and today when i woke its very painful. The pain is at the top of my leg near the middle where the squishy bit is which is a little swollen (hardly noticable) i have what feels like aching weak muscles all down the front of my legs to my knees, my lower back / bottom hurt but not all the time my legs feel weak when i stand, i feel quite sick at times and hot flushes I thought it might be sciatica as my lower legs can hurt too, or a blood clot. i rang the out of hours doctor at 1am and he said its not a clot (only one leg would hurt and no other symptoms) he also said back/ bottom pain could be sciatica but could be a trapped nerve. Now im feeling pain in my lower tummy and hips. i am now experiencing a grumbly tummy and reflux, its 4 am now and im so tired, doctor has made me an appointment at 10am , he suggested a hot water bottle and paracetamol. Any help you please i also have anxiety. No horror stories already freaking out.x

I think the aching legs, butt etc is probably down to tense muscles. I assume you don't stretch? I would start if you don't already as that can relieve so much tension. Look on youtube for stretches and elt me know how you get on. P.s, IBS is a bitch
