Hi and welcome to questiondoctors
The symptoms can be caused due to compression on other structures surrounding the uterus ..you need to check with a gynaecologist and an us may help you figure it out..

I guess it is something compressing your venous return and or your nerves..
U should do a lowerlimb duplex and get assessed be a specialist ..it may be really caused by the intramural fibroid.
