YES .I suffer from Neurophathy in legs and Restless Leg Syndrome.Nerve conduction tests confirmed the Neuro.I have taken Gabapentin for years. On and off. Last evening I took 400mg for the RLS. I woke up screaming in pain with cramp from knee to foot. I have suspected the Gabapentin but now I k now. I will stop it. Another thing that causes muscle cramps is Chlorthalidone for high BP. I have stopped that and my Doc is going to give me something else.He said he is not a fan of it.I have CKD so must be careful. I am 85 yrs old. and if I have learned one thing its. Research Research Research.I am new here as Feb 3,2020. Nice to meet you all, and lets help each other with all these meds.

@londonwc1 Welcome to connect ,glad to have you join us . We only can let you know what helps us . I had the same problem alth not a CKD person. Drinking lots of water helps and Potassium and old remedy is drinking some dill pickle juice when cramps start I have done this and it really works . CHeck with your Dr. about if you can take it . Glad your here and others will join in . I couldnt take Gapapentin it hurt me worse then the cure . One think I use is ice and that gave me relief .

Have you tried taking a teaspoonful of prepared mustard?
