My wife, 4 yr old son, and I in the middle of the night all woke last night with leg cramps. That's never happened. Coincidence? Are we ok?
Probably coincidence: If everyone feels OK in morning, without persistent pain, then likely coincidental. Only things I can think of that might give multiple people muscle cramps at same time are some infections (should cause persistent pain all over), and heat/exertional cramps if everyone had been on tough hike together, for example. Most likely you all are just predisposed to nocturnal cramps. ...Read more
I feel pain like cramps behind me right knee and around it, that knee and leg feel colder then other leg.cramps last even for a day and dont change wi?
Be seen : With that history, I would certainly be seen and evaluated for a aneurysm of the popliteal artery, which can cause the symptoms you are describing. There are numerous other possibilities as well, but it is concerning that you feel the blood flow is reduced on on leg compared to the other. That is not normal. ...Read more

I have sore breast leg cramps low stomach cramps off Depo-Provera for six months spotted last month due for period tomorrow hpt negative hungry more pee a lot?
Well, among other: Things i think u have a bladder infection. It would explain a lot of the cramping. The breast soreness is related to changing hormones. You had a buffer with the depo-provera because your ovaries were not producing estrogen. The leg pain may be referred from the bladder or uterus but if u have a swollen leg and difficulty walking it could be a blood clot. That's unlikely but i would see doc. ...Read more
Leg pain I have leg cramps often , sometimes very painfull. One night i was up all night . About 4am i heard a pop and unberable pain for a few min.S the cramp didnot stop for 2 days.
Leg cramps occur frequently and awaken many people. They are sometimes related to circulation problems, wearing high heeled shoes, spending a lot of time sitting and other activities that shorten the calf muscles. Doctors used to prescribe quinine for the cramps but fda no longer approves of this use. A paper in the new england journal of medicine about thirty years ago suggested leg stretches at bed-time. Stand up against the wall with one foot in front of the other and bend the front knee while keeping the back knee stiff. This stretches the gastrocnemius muscle in the back of the leg. I usually suggest calcium/magnesium tablets as well.If the cramps are in the front and back of the leg at the same time, i usually push hard on the cramped area to make the cramp stop. If you try to stretch one muscle out, the other uscle will cramp more. You may have popped some of the fibers with a severe cramp. The reason it lasted so long was that you may have had some bleeding into the muscle causing irritation. Depending on your age it also would be wise to see your doctor for blood work to check for inbalance of salts in your blood or abnormalities in calcium levels.
Good luck in resolving this really common and annoying problem. ...Read more
Probably not: Blood clots typically present with swelling in the affected leg. It is typically global swelling in the entire leg that has the blood clot. A blood clot can present as cramping, but this is less likely. To be sure, you would need to have a noninvasive ultrasound study of your leg veins to see if there is a clot. This can be performed at an emergency room. ...Read more
4 days late, leg cramps, slight hardly existent cramps, period is usually spot on give or take 1 day. Took 1 test came back negative ?
I know it is really: surprising when your period is late when it is usually very predictably on time. But with a negative pregnancy test taken after the day you expected your period, it is still highly likely you are not pregnant. Stress, illness, medications, changes in general (the holidays!) all affect your hormones and menstrual pattern. If no menses in another week, test again. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Magnesium, E, B12...: The most common nutrient needed for leg cramps is magnesium, ideally as glycinate, taurate or citrate, but sometimes potassium, calcium & vit e help. B12 shots can help too. Stretching the back of the legs before bedtime can help too. Many herbs can also relax muscles, such as valerian, skullcap, passionflower and kava. Consider warm baths with epsom salts and lavender oil. ...Read more
