I have to sleep with a pillow between my thighs/knees -- and then I still end up turning over pretty often

sounds like it might be your sciatic nerve. it can cause leg pain. I'd see a chiro for sure, only thing that helped me.

Yup, definitely sounds like sciatic pain. Chiro is your best bet, possibly some exercises or physical therapy if it's really bad -- pain meds won't really help unless you get straightened out. Good luck! It can be really debilitating.
