Do any of you experience severe cramp?
I am experiencing severe cramps in my legs at night. It's not just cramp in the calf where you can stretch and it goes after a short while. This is major severe cramp which is affecting ALL my leg and foot muscles. I am getting cramp in muscles I didn't know I had!
I'm exhausted in the morning, having been up numerous times during the night. No amount of stretching works because that just cramps up the opposing muscle. The worse cramp is the one that starts in my big toe and runs along the top of my foot and up my shin.
The upside is that my legs are now solid muscle!
I have tried tonic water and also corks under the mattress to no effect! I'm now looking at potassium and magnesium rich foods, drinking more water, etc.
I have RA, osteoarthritis of the spine (and various other bits) and fibromyalgia. I've done lots of internet browsing and it could be one of the symptoms of the fibro or even a side effect of the depo-med injection I had recently.
Any fellow Happy Crampers out there?
