This deficiency is not so much that you have any other symptoms, but at night, you get the cramps. Please make sure you drink water and add some salt to it.
I have had cramps also and I believe it is related to the peg but cant be sure. I get up at night sometimes because my foot will have a cramp and unless I get out of bed and put weight on it it wont go away. Just have to live with it while under the study's.
Try to change your sleeping position and avoid sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g supine, and better to sleep little early. Few things like avoiding - alcohol at night with smoking, caffeine, too spicy bulky meal and going to bed late night can be helpful. Alprax before sleep can be tried. Most important thing is to get rid of stress. Exercise and meditation can be helpful. Take care and update your views.
It has been so long since I was comfortable enough and didn't have to go to the bathroom, or didn't have leg cramps at night that I actually got a few hours through the night!! I think I am going to try some tylenol pm see if that helps any!!!
I did some research on foot cramps and can tell you what I have found out. I do not know your age, but cramps in the feet <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g at night is apparently fairly common as people grow older. It is believed that this is sometimes caused by poor circulation in the feet, and is more common in diabetics than in other people. If you are younger than the middle years, then perhaps it could be a result of damage to blood vessels because of diabetes not properly controlled.
A few months ago my right foot started vibrating-then one night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g I felt like I was laying on top of a running refrigerator (thought maybe it was coming from the apt below me) went into another room and realized it was me vibrating..very scary feeling..now its only happening in my left foot..has anyone found out whats causing this..
When I was cirrhotic I had horrible leg cramps in my calves at night. What worked best was to get up and walk around. It's hard at first, because of the pain but it works. Roll to the edge of the bed and hang your leg down. Then go ahead stand up and slowly walk. It really worked for me, I guess it's because it gets the circulation going. I got to where I could catch them before they cramped up too bad.
I have had Ostio arthritis confirmed after retiring from a lifetime of the heavy work of construction by two x rays taken 6 months apart, the expert commented it is mild/moderate and from the x rays said it was stable but if it progresses further I will be looking at some surgery so I do go to great length to check out any changes such as the night <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> cramps I have noted which while infrequent have come on more often the past year.
My foot hurt real bad for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> then got stiff. Everytime I point my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> it cramps. If I point my big toe it locks into place with excruciating pain in my foot. It slowly comes back up like click...click...click. My big toe is pointed up. But good news is it's getting better and doesn't lock up anymore. Only took 2 years, woohoo.
I get these toe cramps too.......... I get them in the arch of my feet ans sometimes they travel up the back of my legs! They are very painful!!!!!!
i also geta cramp by the upper left part of my abs and it right under the left rib cage. i dont know what its is but it happens when i jog or hit the punching bag in my conditioning class.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Cramps in groin and thigh <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g can be due to low iron, magnesium,calcium or folate, sleep disorder like restless leg syndrome or due to a pinched superficial nerve. Try decreasing the use of caffeine, alcohol, and tobacco. Take supplements to correct deficiencies in iron, folate, and magnesium. Taking a hot bath and massage the legs with warm oil or a heating pad. Some benefit by using an ice pack. Consult a sleep specialist.
and it was negative --which honestly was not a surprise b/c I just don't feel like I am at all. (I haven't had any cramps or fluterings for a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> and my breasts are just a bit sore -- likely the progesterone though) I'll let you know when all is confirmed though! --I'm still acting somewhat PUPO, but I'm prepared to move forward if my HPT and feelings are confirmed. HOPE EVERYONE IS DOinG WELL -- Lot's of baby miracles on their way for all!
I am experiencing very bad leg cramps every night until the early morning hours. It causes restlessness and wakes me up a few times a night. Does anyone else have this problem or know what to do? I am already eating a banana everyday for potassium and taking an iron pill for amenia, I have read that it could be a sign of amenia. I am also doing calf stretches because I read that this should also help.
Anyone else getting cramps from the but down to the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g on any particular side? I literally toss and turb every night because one side hurts and i have to roll off to another side. How are any of yo ladies dealing with this pain?
This is a vitamin-mineral imbalance much like what happens when someone gets leg-cramps in bed at night,which I think is related to a magnesium-calcium deficiency.I had heard this woman on a radio show (don't laugh)talk about her use of a technique called BODY SCANNinG used in conjunction with her nutritional supplement program.She did the body scan thing and put me on her vitamin-supplement program.
I had a terrible time with muscle cramps and spasms, side of the neck, cramps at the base of my calves, severe pain in my legs and hips when I went to bed at night. I found from reading this forum that many people with Hashimoto's had the same symptoms, I also found several of them had taken Vitamin D, Magnesium and B12, I was ready to try anything (I had not been tested for a lack of these vitamins in my system) I started taking all three about 5 Days ago, and what a difference!
Your messed up FT3 levels are also responsible for your cramps and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> pain. FT3 at the low end is not right. But-.....you have high reverse T3? Were the proper calculations performed? I've never met a doc that will test RT3, much less one that understands how its treated - by using T3 med only till RT3 'fushes out' and normalizes. Is this high RT3being addressed?
I've the exact same symptoms, 3.5 years running. Mine, too, started <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> doing frequent lifting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> working at a retail location, often with 12 hour shifts, standing on unpadded concrete. I've since had 100% desk jobs with no improvement. Pain isn't really all that big of a deal since it rarely lasts past 30 minutes after I wake up. I'm just sick of the insomnia. I've been to a variety of "care providers." with absolutely no results.
I had to pull over at the closest exit and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> i did i was shaking and crying. I barely made it back on and was only going about 35mph in a zone for 55mph. i had to take backroads home. after this situation, i started to feel okay to drive on the highway during the day light, but in the evening i cant. i feel like i'm on a roller coaster, the feeling you get right before your about to fall. i can drive on side roads at night. roads that are quiet.
I also have other symptoms, such as if I flex my right leg, the muscles of my calf cramp up, and/or quiver, and take a <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> to release. If I raise my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> and flex the muscles in my leg, my foot is held in place and slowly drops as the muscle relaxes. Occasionally, if I point my toes down, they cramp and are stuck pointing down. I also noticed (and measured) last night, that my right lower leg seems much smaller in circumference, and is indeed .5-1" smaller than my left calf.
Though , the cramps (1 or 2) she's had since the incident , seem like normal cramps anyone can get at night , not the strong one she got that time. I dont really know what was happening , but it looks like controlling the cramps , diet change , resting , and good sleep really have helped my wife a lot. I would suggest the diet , as well as trying to control the cramps with Icy-Hot by applying it when you feel you are going to get a cramp , and resting , not over doing your legs.
The problem is at night when sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g, try a pillow in between your legs. I think we are keeping this pain until we deliver or untl our bodies go back to normal. Oh well! The swelling on my feet and legs went down with a massage, so I will get some massage oil and have my husband do that every night! Hang in there!
Lots of baby dust to you all. Cramps don't mean yes or No. I had cramps and mine did not work <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> my aunt had no cramps and hers worked...Goodluck to you all.. Bajan Girl how was the ultrasound?
lol I just can't stand the thought of an big ole dirty man right out of the bathroom after 'cautiously supporting his member in order to release his urine stream' and coming out (picture this slow motion and nasty gestures in man's face <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>while</span> looking straight at cute baby ahead) of the bathroom... while thinking: 'oh!!!!!! cute baby!' (still slow motion) ....'hi little baby!?' (slowly reaching for her.........*insert sound of cheesy freddy krugger movie sound eeeh eeeh eeeh eeeh*....
usually when im the most tired during the day...i've only been sleep<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>in</span>g 4 to 5 hours a night and can't ever fall asleep. i always feel tired and week. i have no energy anymore.
for the past couple wks been gettin other pains from different parts of my body ie shoulder, chest, rib cage, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>foot</span> at same time havin the original pain. had to take time from work from all this. has anyone had this problem, what could it be.
The swelling will go away at night as I elevate my legs to sleep, but returns at some point throughout the day. Today, I notice that my calf muscles were extremely tight and sore. I’m going to see a doctor next week as I can hardly walk due to the pain. I just sort of drag my feet with my knees bent. I’m a 30 year old female, and as someone else mentioned - I have a obsessive phobia of losing limbs.
I was told by a chiropractor that this is a common problem and most people spend a lot of time and money at doctors when the problem is usually the bed. Another thing that will help is to put a pillow between your legs at night and sleep towards the center part of the bed. Hope this works for you as it has for me.
i don't know if it's bad enough to call the doctor?? plus at night i was feeling period like cramps!!!! =S They went away, but i WILL tell you this: I am ready for Maddie!!!! =( I want her here!!!! im full term now! and i also freaked out because in my 'week by week' book i read that at 38 weeks the placenta starts to age!?!?!?!?!
