I have recently started suffering from quite bad cramp attacks, say over the last 18 months or so. I am now on Simvastatin for Cholesterol reduction and more recently on a Seretiide inhaler for Asthma control. Both these I think have increased the frequency and strength of my cramps which are now very painful. The cramps occur mainly in bed but the other day I was riding my cycle (to the Doctors) and my left leg completely froze with painful cramp. I wobbled to the curb and rested but it was a couple of minutes before I could straighten my leg and continue....this was quite scary! My Doctor suggested 'Tonic water' which she later refured to as 'Sparkling water'. I have been taking Tonic Water for a few days now, just two small glasses a day, and it does seem to be improving the situation.
Will see how it goes....
