I am getting the most unbelievable leg cramps. They start in the evening often if i am lying stretched out on the sofa and go on through the night. Last night they started early so I had a banana and took my hot water bottles to bed. At midnight when I was in agony and had already hopped out of bed several times to stand on the floor to straighten my leg out, I went downstairs and cut a slice of bread and buttered it with salty butter to see if that would help. It didn't so I was in and out of bed like a yoyo trying to get rid of the pain. This morning when I got up the muscles in my leg were still really painful.
Any idea why I don't get cramp during the day and it tends to happen as soon as I lie down?
