night time muscle cramps

Posted by hosta, Eve @hosta, Jul 8, 2018

Hi, my name is Eve, I get night time muscle cramps in my legs, and feet. It is now 2:AM and I am awake. after having a cramp in my left calf. Dr recommended tonic water with quinine. But I still get the cramps They can come in any part of my legs from the groin down to the toes.. I walk the floor with a cain and cry, they hurt so bad. What causes this and what will help? Thanks!.

@eve welcome to this wonderful group I can suggest an old remedy Pickle juice or have some mustard for its the vinegar that will relieve the cramps .Do you take Magnesium?This is not only good for cramps but for the body Our bodies loves minerals of all kind ,calcium,mag.and potassium For me I do this faithfully in a good Vitamin-Mineral. Take an Epsom salts soak in bathtub,or just with a washcloth .Hope this helps some See a Dr for more information. Right now you can make a vinegar-water dilution in sink ,wring out a washcloth and hold it On legs till it starts to get cool then do same on other leg hopefully this will start to give you some relief this helps me with let cramps Blessings to you

Hi Eve, I have early lag cramp as my morning calls! I know one thing that will bring on the cramp is if my blanket is stretched too tight on my feet! I always loosen the top sheet and the blanket so they don't touch my feet! Also, I massage my legs and feet in bed before I fall asleep! Sometimes, I suffer from pinched nerve on top of my right foot, like an electric shock that kept me up all night. It usually lasted 24 hours, but during the day I can function without interruption! My primary doctor doesn't know the causes and didn't offer any remedies! I also drink powder Turmeric tea with a touch of black pepper.

Hi @mari: Thanks for give it a name"neuromas", I feel better already! After reading "neuromas" on the internet, I'm not sure I have neuromas! My electric shock sensation is more on the top middle part of my right foot and not near the toes! Anyway, I'll remember the name and mention it to my primary doctor on my next annual wellness visit in May 2019!
Our bodies just have too many parts, more than a car, that can cause problems! I thought my old age worry is just about wrinkles!

@ew100 I had a neuroma between my 2-3 toe the foot Dr.is who took care of me they injected it told me to get a ball gel you where On your foot for a couple of days and it would be o.k. Haven't had trouble with it since.Dr.gave me a print out it's the nerve looks like it is bulged and pinched by , both sides of the bones causes it to hurt mostly on the bottom of foot in that area more so then on top.From your explanation it ,doesn't sound like a neuroma.But I'd suggest a Podiatrist if your PCP isn't sure if course if you don't see him for a whole year I'd suggest make an appointment with a foot Dr.Just my thoughts .good luck

Hello, had a neuroma that was so painful, all the way up the leg, surgeon called it morton's neuroma (on foot) removed it, 20 years ago, no trouble since then, I did not go to podiatrist, went to orthopedist that specialized in foot problems.
