    What do you mean about the bottom of your leg? Do you mean your shin? Your ankle? I've had leg pain during menstural periods. It's felt like a dull ache deep in the thigh muscle. But I don't know if that's normal!

     There is such a thing "menstrual arthritis," but it's rare and more related to rheumatoid arthritis. If it continues to bother you, tell your gynecologist or family doctor. Anything that is sudden onset like that is something you want to have seen right away.
