Magnesium & Calcium can help the leg cramps. Speak to your doctor about Lyrica - it’s great for nerve pain. But it does increase your appetite. Start at a low dose because if the dose is too high it can make you dopey.

Make sure you're drinking enough Water. Biggest cause of muscle spasm is dehydration.

I talked with my nutritionist and I can eat 2 prunes or half a banana with FF milk. She also suggested I have Gatorade zero over four days when this happens. I suggest you talk with your nutritionist.

While I always suffered from occasional charlie horses (calf) in the night, since my surgery and/or dramatic weight loss, I've periodically gotten the most Gawdawful cramps in the tops of my feet extending up into lower shins, again only at night. Actually tougher to deal with than charlie horses. With the latter, at least massaging the muscle typically would cause the spasms/constricting to abate. Not with these. Gotta gingerly try to walk it off over a period of 15 minutes or so.

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.
