Avatar_m_tn I'm 19 weeks and for the past few days have woken in the morning with very painful foot or lower leg cramps. I have to wake my husband to get him to stretch my leg. Anybody had the same problem? Any suggestions?
Avatar_f_tn The cramps are either very strong or weak but repeated (I can have cramps on both legs at the same time). Foot cramps can get to 15 cramps on a row. L-carnitine had effect for one or two weeks but then came back to the same.Is this a muscle metabolic disorder? Should I look for other causes?
Avatar_n_tn I am 70 years old and take calcium supplements for osteoporosis and awhile after I started, I began to have leg (actually foot) cramps at night. Then I found out that calcium needs to be balanced with magnesium, and if the magnesium is low, it can cause leg cramps. I added one magnesium tablet (about130 mg) per day to my 500mg calcium three times daily and the foot cramps went away. (Clear it with her doctor, though, as magnesium can interact with some medications.
Avatar_f_tn It's pregnancy related. I get foot and leg cramps really bad when pregnant especially at night. Nothing really helps I tried everything.
203342_tn?1328740807 I've been having cramps in my foot off and on for awhile. Last night I had a bad cramp in my calf. Usually this is at night, but not always. Like right now I have a cramp in my foot. Last night I had such a bad cramp in my leg I had to hop out of bed and hobble around for quite awhile before it finally went away. Could this be a sign of dehydration? What else could it be?
1388357_tn?1280193093 I get pretty bad cramping and spacticity in my rt leg and foot. It sometimes gets so bad that I can't lift my rt leg or push it forward to walk. Thankfully this hasn't ever lasted more than a day at a time for me. My rt calf constantly feels like it's going to Charlie horse cramp. Nothing helps it. I also have weird, random twitches and jerks in legs, feet, hands, arms, even torso and neck. Once in the ER, a few months ago, and twice by different pcps, I was noted to have rt side weakness.

Avatar_f_tn I am 30w 5d and I have been experiencing legs cramps and foot cramps the past month. These last 4 days my cramps have been in both legs/ feets at the sams time and last night I fell and could not get up. My husband had to left me up and help me walk it out. They last around 5-10 minutes. Does anyone else have these problems? I have increased my potassium and tried peppermint oil before bed.
Avatar_f_tn Not sure if they will help, but might be worth a shot. Another thing that helped stopped my leg cramps was drinking Pedialite. Great source of electrolites without the sugar!

Avatar_f_tn I am 24 weeks pregnant and I wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain. I have right lower leg cramps. Someone told me to stand up against the wall barefoot on a cold floor which actually worked for me. Also, drink the juice of olives in the can or pickles. I haven't tried that but I heard it works fast.

Avatar_f_tn I have been experiencing leg cramps and foot cramps for several weeks. I feel my legs have a tingling sensation and are weak. I am on numerous medications but the fruggist says they are all compatable and should not do this. The cramping worsens at night.
