I have not posted about this in the past, but my legs have been giving me problems for a while (the last couple of years). I will get nasty leg cramps, and they will violently twitch at night, and when I say violently twitch, I mean that they will violently kick at night when I am trying to sleep, I have been ejected from my bed from the kicks. I have a bit of a fear that one night I am going to wake up in massive pain from a broken toe. Does any one that read my blog have any suggestions on what I can do to help stop it.
I am trying a few “Dietary supplements” and they are:
- Potassium (99mg)
- Magnesium (400mg)
- Calcium (1000mg, a friend of mine said this might help, it can not hurt)
- finally I take some “Leg Cramps” pills with Quinine (not a Dietary supplement, but it is for leg cramps)
I started these about a year ago and they only help a little bit, they help with the cramps, but my legs still violently kick at night, so I am wondering if any one know of anything I can do to help stop the kicking at night?
