Not Quite Cramping Muscle

Not Quite Cramping Muscle

The calf muscle in my right leg has been feeling like it wants to cramp over the pass few weeks. It hasn't cramped though. Has anyone else had this?xx

Make sure your daily fluid intake is kept high ( at least 2 litres a day). Try drinking a glass of tonic water a day, the quinine in it helps with cramps. Adding a Magnesium Malate supplement to your daily routine should also help to eliminate the problem. Epson Salts baths is another way of getting Magnesium into your body and it also will help relax muscles ( and you). I take one 3/4 times a week straight before bed as its great for helping with sleep. You could also try some gentle stretching exercises to see if it releases it in meantime.

Hope this helps and sending gentle hugs xxx

Yes I have had this. It's really annoying. Sometimes it will go in a few days other times it's lasted weeks. Try doing some stretching exercises. I have found since doing water aerobics and swimming it doesn't happen as much. Hope this helps.

I get this in the back of my thigh. Often on the inner thigh which is very painful and can send me on my but at times. The only remedy I found helpful is heat and rest. It's not the same as stiffness. Almost feels like ligament injury.

Last month or so (Scottish Winter?) both my calf muscles are in total spasm. It only bothers me when I am in bed. It's so bad we can see the muscles moving. But no real pain. But keeps me awake for hours on end.
Total nightmare....
