For quite some time I've had trouble falling asleep and staying asleep through the night. About 2 weeks ago, I started having leg cramps only when I lay down for bed. I realized heat helped with the pain so I asked my husband to place his legs over mine, using his natural body heat to soothe the pain. Later that night, I woke up feeling extremely hot internally but cool to the touch. I also felt nausea and dizziness. After about 15 minutes these symptoms subsided but the next day my throat felt swollen and has been this way for 3 days. After some research, I found that magnesium deficiency may be the culprit so I bought some magnesium spray and it helped with the leg pain and I slept great. I'm assuming that my thyroid gland is swollen but I'm wondering, as I don't have health insurance right now, is this something that will go away on its own or do I need medical attention?
