Cramps

Post by Mali on Fri Oct 10, 2008 3:23 pm

I have been up and down all night with freaking muscle cramps in my legs they have got so bad that I decided to just get up and hopefully when I return to bed they will be gone. Does anyone else here suffer from cramps? Boy are they painful. Im getting cold now so I wont be long before I am back in bed. Evil or Very Mad

There is this remedy that keeps coming up in the medical column in the newspaper. it says to put a bar of soap under the sheet when you sleep. People swear by it, can't hurt right??

No it cant they also state that wine corks stop them but I have found that I had very high potassium levels (too many bananas) now I ate one two days ago the first one in weeks and I am just wondering if it was that. But I will try the soap it cant hurt.

No I have not used soap however I have stopped eating bananas and that ceases them which is wonderful. I had one the day before to try it out and whammo the cramps came back so I can no longer eat them. Too much Potassium in your system will cause them.

I get legs cramps as well.... never heard of eating to many bananas causes them....

I have heard about the corks in the bed too but never tried it... they wake me up and it feels like someone is trying to saw my leg off ... and the muscles feel really tight for days afterwards

Yep that's them bloody painful had a few last night as well but they went pretty quick the night before however I had one that went for 15 minutes right up my shin, into my foot, and my hamstring it was not pleasant. Yes your muscles are sore for days. My dad used to pass out with cramps. As for bananas I am eating them again and have not had cramps like I used to I think it was something else to be honest.

It can also do with calcium levels as well. I dont eat salt a great deal. But  I will start to take magnesium that does the trick it stops them dead in their tracks.
