I've been suffering for sometime now with leg cramps during the night, sometimes they are so painful I end flying out of bed, hopping around the bedroom trying to stretch them out. I get them both in my Calves and the Hamstrings (Not at the same time). I've found if I bend my knees whilst lying on my side, (like the fetus position) that often brings them on.
I've tried several things like drinking Tonic Water (Quinine) and extra stretching but to date it has not helped. It's driving me mad, not only is it painful it's also now impacting on my sleep
I guess I am hoping it's not related to running!
Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
