Oct 10, 2018 · Severe leg cramps in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Only thing I know is heat or ice Make sure you're staying hydrated stretching walking warm bath maybe with some Epson salt. If they continue go to the dr and find out why you are having them. I'm sorry I'm not much help . But I hope you can get them under control. 🙂

The only medicine that did help me with my Nerve pain and the Burning stabbing and all that goes with that was gabapentin I have tried so many over the years Lyrical also work but Gabapentin was much cheaper and my Spinal stimulator helps alot. But nothing will Totally take all the pain away all I do is pray that it helps me get through the day..

I hope your day is better then yesterday and you can fine a reason to smile. 🙂
