Heat stroke muscle cramps

Common Questions and Answers about Heat stroke muscle cramps


1475492 tn?1332887767 I have a couple questions. I have had muscle twitches for nearly a year now. It was my presenting symptom. It started out as the full body jerk you get when you fall asleep, except that it progressed to happening every night and I was wide awake. Those stayed and then I started having the twitches (little muscle twitches like you eyes twitch) but it was primarily ocurring on the left side of my body - my bicep, my quad, my calf, the bottom of my foot.
Avatar n tn It revealed that my spine was begining to curve in the wrong direction which i'm told is common for people presenting with muscle cramps. I had an MRI done, with and without contrast, revealing nothing. I had an angiogram done which also revealed nothing. I was sent to physical therapy which only proved to make my condition worse. By this time the sypmtoms had progressed through my entire body, not just my right side. they tried several medications, none of which helped.
Avatar n tn I finished the run, and shortly after became extremely nauseaus, chilled, basic flulike symptoms. I thought I had heat stroke or something, drank lots of Gatorade. I felt crappy for almost a week, persisent nausea and chills, and a really yucky burning, not normal feeling in my legs. As I began to feel better, I started back running, but continued to experience the burning/chills in my leg muscles and nausea that would linger for a few days.
Avatar n tn I have had this exact same problem and asked my doctor about this. When I do a sit up right below my breast bone will knott up like a charlie horse. I am 51 and out of shape. A nurse friend also recommended potassium. My doctor said to do as man sit ups each day that as my muscles began to take shape this cramping should go away. It is very painful and when it happens it takes along time to be able to sit back up. LOL!! I hate it and I will get back in shape.
Avatar n tn I have those pains too. They are muscle cramps. A massage by a professional masseuse will help. To get your cramps to go away within 30 minutes, take a quinine sulfate tablet. (260mg tablet). Works every time. They use to be over the counter but now you need to get a prescription. I don't think they interfer with other meds. Ask your doctor.

Give fluids if the person is alert. Seek medical attention. If heat illness is causing the fever, medicines may not lower the body temperature and may even be harmful.

Avatar m tn Creatine is LIKELY SAFE for most people when used at recommended doses. Creatine can cause stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and muscle cramping. When taken by mouth in high doses, creatine is POSSIBLY UNSAFE. There is some concern that it could harm the kidney, liver, or heart function. However, a connection between high doses and these negative effects has not been proven. Creatine causes muscles to draw water from the rest of your body. Be sure to drink extra water to make up for this.

However, knowing that the Babinski Reflex is described as "when your big toe flexes upward as the other toes fan out" - recently, I was a little taken back when I noticed my foot exhibiting this very thing while undergoing one of my painfull foot cramps. At the time my feet were bare and my foot was "stuck" in this position until I could work it out.
