For your leg cramps, please try putting a bar of soap in your bed! I know it sounds nuts, but I used to get severe leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> foot <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> frequently, both day and night. I tried this method, figuring it was basically free, and couldn't do any harm, and I'm now a true believer. cramps are gone -- unless I wear socks to bed, or the soap falls out or if I kick the covers off. Try it, it's a lot cheaper than seeing another doctor or buying meds. Any type of bar soap apparently works.
Are leg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> because of the meds? Last night I kept getting <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> in my toes <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> the front of my right shin. Not because of dehydration for sure. Drinking plenty of water. Is 5-6 16.9oz bottles enough throughout the day, or should I be drinking more. I ate 3 large bananas yesterday also & still cramps. Started feeling a little quezzy now and then yesterday. Has any one else had the leg cramps. and has any one tried Restful legs from Walmart? I'm buying some today for later on today.
Hello <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> Welcome, Yes, one of my worst experiences with Chiari has to do with leg pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> stiffness. Long before I started to have other symptoms I would go through bouts of extreme joint pain and I would keep thinking that I had a virus. What I realize now is that Chiari causes muscle weakness and pain in the joints is one of the first signs as your joints are not being supported by you muscles and ligaments as they should be.
Foot cream rubbed on the back of my calves helped. So did soaks in hot water and showers. Get hubby to give you a leg rub. Heating pad on the legs where it hurts or a warm water bottle.

Hi everyone - a big part of withdrawals that I hate is calf <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cramps</span> (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> foot/side of shin/front of shin muscle cramps), but especially calf cramps because my whole lower leg would just lock up in rigour, and inevitably it happens when I was getting those few hours of precious sleep - I am sure you all know the drill.

I am saddened that I was unable to get the help I needed when I asked for it and now I am scared to death I will not be able to go home with my daughter.
