I was diagnosed with ET last year and take Hydroxicarbamide (x2 daily) and asprin. Recently I have been getting really bad cramp in calf and thigh, usually coming on in the early hours after a couple of hours sleep.
Is this common? Is it anything to do with the ET and medication or just a coincidence? I have tried herbal remedies, magnesium rub, tonic water for the quinine, together with trying to stay well hydrated, but nothing is working. Any thoughts and suggestions would be most welcome.
