It seems if I get enough activity/exercise daily I don’t have pain; if not, am awakened from sleep and must get up (even in the middle of the night). What’s going on & what more should I do to avoid rest-disruption?

@klro001 Kia, I hope your legs are ok!!! I was thinking about you, in general. When I get the Conolidine, I think I will write a major post….a discussion topic, for everyone to see. I think everyone here needs to see it! So look to see it as a separate post!!! Be well. Lori Renee

@lorirenee1 My legs still feel wet, even though they’re dry as a bone. So odd. 😕 I think it’s a great idea to start a new discussion topic about your experience with Conolidine. I think you would get better visibility that way. You’re in my thoughts and prayers.

I have a question open to anyone! I do not remember anyone mentioning foot/leg cramps! I have had periodic painful foot cramping at night which has recently worsened along with pain on my right foot which wakes me at night and after massaging and walking it out I have to try to stay in the same position in bed or it will rebound. I take magnesium 2xday and drink plenty of water. Anyone have any advice? I’m hoping it is temporary 😕
Welcome back Helen, or are you still in California? Foot cramps….yikes! Mine would start about 4am. Here is the quickest way that I found helpful. Sit on the ledge in the shower. Turn the water on as hot as you can stand it. Hopefully you have a hand held shower head. Then just pour water until the foot/ankle seem to release. Do both of your feet cramp at the same time?
To keep the cramps from coming back right away, would you use the Releaf Balm? I am going to try mixing the 3:1 with the 1:3 for the feet. You always get my brain working. Be free of suffering especially from cramps. Chris

@lioness Hi! I hope its not a scam company! Please post when you take start trying the Conolidine, and I will too. Hope you are feeling ok. So hard, this pain! Lori Renee
@lorirenee1 I know that crossed my mind also. I will let you know when and if I get mine also . This pain is unbearable at times. with the fibro flares the worse . Hope you have a good nite sleep
@helennicola Here is an old remedy for leg cramps that works for me . Pickle juice or mustard Ive done both and they work ,as soon as you are awakened with a cramp head for the refrig. and drink some about 2 swollwes does it for me . Are you drinking plenty of water during the day? Potassium and magnesium with help also . Of course what artscaping suggested also works.
Thanks for your replies Chris and Lioness, unfortunately pickle juice, mustard and a bar of soap under the sheets never helped me. Chris, I cannot tolerate very hot water and do not have a hand held shower attachment so I guess I can scratch that one! I have increased my magnesium, increased my salt and decreased my water and caffeine intake, also started nightly leg and feet stretches per John’s research link. I’ll let everyone know how this works. Thanks again everyone for all the feedback. I do love this forum. Helen
I am a retired dancer & hold a m.s. degree: circulation increases with exercise.
I can't excercise much because my feet hurt so bad !

@seniordon09 I face the same dilemma. I know that exercise is a good idea, but I pay for it big time. I only walk when I need to go somewhere. I have to work between winters because our place would deteriorate if I don't stay ahead of the gophers and moles and ground squirrels, and mow the lawns and weed, weed, weed. The orchard and vegetable garden and the many flower beds, along with the house and barn and garage and the rest of our ten acres. I'm extremely grateful to have a good riding mower with a 48" deck. I pull around a small trailer with it – it saves me a lot of steps. Walking just for the fun of it or for the physical benefits is beyond my capability. Each step has to count. Another thing I'm grateful for is a disability placard. Those steps across hard pavement count double on my pain scale.

@seniordon09 I know how bad neuropathy affects your feet I started chairexercise and have had people tell me how much these exercises have helped there feet. Mainly the feet exercises arenjudt stretching the feet and toes rolling the ankles can you just try these before you do anything else maybe you have but everyday even during the day should help it won't get rid of the problem but help

@lioness Still no conolidine. You cannot even check your orders on line at their company. Has been almost a month ago that I ordered……will write a big post if I get it. Lori Renee

@klroo0001 Kia, I think that wetness on your legs are sensations from your nerves. Look up paresthesia. It is odd nerve sensations that are not harmful, but very annoying and strange. I will post about the Conolidine if I ever get it. Lori Renee

@lorirenee1 Still no Conolidine . I'm going to website and find out again . If I get I I,ll let you know .
I second that opinion. My feet and back of calves experience cold wet sensations. My case is neuropathy. Rule out though testing before you get too caught up.
I have been walking barefoot, and am noticing improvement, especially with balance.

There's no way I'm going to walk barefoot. Even though shoes and socks are somewhat painful depending on what shoes I wear, barefoot is not only painful, it's risky, as well. I had a muscle puncture test and didn't feel the needle go in the top of my foot, though the punctures in 3 other places up my leg were extremely painful. It makes me concerned about stepping on something sharp and not feel it, much like a diabetic faces.
