      I know the feweling-I almost woke my husband and wanted to go to hospital. They wouldn't stop and wanted to cry. Finally walking around helped them go away, but it took a long time. That was last week, none since. Drink more water.

    Hi Chameleon,

    as you will see from the various posts nobody really has an answer to these cramps. Some people say Magnesium helps them but not everyone, at the moment I've been given a course of five vitamin B12 injections and am keeping my fingers crossed! 

    Good luck with finding something for yours.

    I was getting horrible cramps at night!  Went to doctor and had magnesium and potassium checked.  They came out okay.  Told m to stretch before bed and to drink a 1/2 cup of tonic water 45 minutes before bed.  The stretching consisted of putting my foot up on a door or wall and bending my foot leaning in so the calf muscles stretched.  Do each foot alternating holding about 10-15 seconds and repeat 10 times.  I have no problems now.  Although I also had steroid injections in my back and don't know if it was the stretching or the injections?  Nothing to lose doing the stretches.  I would have your magnesium and potassium checked though.

    good luck!  They are really painful!

    keep us posted!
