Cramps In Legs, Feet And Hands

Cramps In Legs, Feet And Hands

Hi there!
This just started in the last week - guess you could call it cramps or Charlie horses. My legs if I stretch them during the night or while sitting….feet…toes curl and hurt terribly….same with fingers.
Any one else having these problems?
I am already taking magnesium and calcium…
Not sure which dr to talk to about this!

@A MyOsteoTeam Member I get leg cramps at night, especially with the right leg. I keep a walker by the bed, so I can slowly straighten the leg out and relax the calf muscle. My goal is not to fall! Be sure you drink enough water during the day!

I was told that it is due to a low intake of potassium.
Try to eat more bananas.

Occasionally I have leg cramps and will eat bananas for a couple of days or take a potassium pill for 3 days and it goes away.

Hi everyone, so sorry you all have the muscle spasms and the restless legs.
I myself have have Fibromyalgia 22 years snd O have Rheumatoid arthritis ober 18 yrs everywhere. Then 5 yrs back ontop of a heep of different physical health conditions i developed osteoarthritis and later osteoporosis. The leg, calf and toes cramps/ spasms are so painful to be sure. Quick relief fix is very warm towel around the area then apply a cream or spray named Deep heat massage the area in deep circular movements with or without cream or spray.
Yes fibromyalgia has become so out there now and is recognised as a chronic physical health condition. Unfortunately what some of you have given symptoms of dose sound like a combination of the FMS / Fibro Myalgia Syndrome with the artwrites. Your gp can do whats called a clinical assessment and Dignose then refair you to the proper consultants to give a full diagnoses. I hope this helps you all. Also warm shower into night close pop into bed , have a hot water bottle or electric blanket on to have the bed warm this will prevent the toes curling and the side an back of your tighs or calves or hamstrings and massage where spasms are and this should help tie you overver while waiting for assessment then ask yo be referred to a physical therapists. I hope this helps you all. Also try avoid to much dairy milk use coconut milk or Lactose because any other milk can block the flow of calcium. You can also use magnesium its great for deep pains an spasms too.
Let me know how you get in with your GP won't you all? Sending big healing hugs with comfort love and light always sent to you all. 🤗🤗🤗👼😇
