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.

Are there any good ways to prevent leg cramps in my sleep?

Several things

Sleep
Night-time leg cramps are common. Try stretching your calf muscles before going to bed: Stand away from a wall and lean forward keeping one heel flat and bringing the other foot forward; hold 30-60 seconds and then stretch the other side. Consider stretching several times a day. There are medications for some conditions that help. See your primary provider if stretching does not work.

I think the metropolol I am taking is causing nocturnal leg cramps. What is a good substitute. I've been on the met for two years?

No

Nocturnal
Metoprolol doesn't cause nocturnal leg cramps. That said, there at least 50 alternatives. I can't suggest an alternative without knowing more about you.

I am feeling fatigue, occasionally dizziness swelling of calves&ankles., occasionally leg cramps. Heart cath was good, leg circulation test was good what could be wrong

You need to visit

Cardiac
your Internist, for a complete history and physical. Blood work sounds like a good idea as well. Do you take medications? Any medical conditions? Cramping in legs at night? or while walking? There are more questions that need to be answered.....to help you.

I have been having bad leg and feet cramps atnight. My potassium level is good. I take a heating pad to bed everynite. I am on cholesterol meds, high blood pressure med. Have been for many years. Don't know what to do with these leg cramps. I'm frust

There are many causes for leg cramps at night, including the infamous "restless leg syndrome." (BTW, whenever you see the word "syndrome" in medicine, it's code for "we don't know.") Electrolyte disturbances (not only potassium) can cause this, and some blood pressure medication is well known to cause electrolyte imbalances, but the symptoms aren't limited to bed time. Another common cause is muscle fatigue, especially if you feel your cramping is worse after a day when you're on your feet more than usual. This is due to biomechanical problems with your feet and legs that cause your muscles to overwork. You also mentioned you're taking "cholesterol meds." Statins have gotten some bad press recently, despite the GREAT way they lower cholesterol and cardiovascular risk. While it's probably unrelated, it's probably also worth telling the doctor who prescribed your cholesterol medication about your leg cramps. In fact, your starting point in getting relief is probably your primary care physician. If he suspects it might be due to muscle fatigue, a visit to a podiatrist for a pair of orthotics would certainly help you. Good luck.

Dr. Alvin B. Lin answered:

What can I do for leg cramps?

Go see your doctor

Leg_cramps
Review your medications w/your doc after telling her/him what bothers you. Any diuretics (water pills)? These can upset your electrolye balance leading to cramps. We used to recommend quinine for leg cramps but it's not easily available, nor inexpensive these days. You could try drinking tonic water, perhaps. Stretching is always helpful. Make sure no swelling in affected leg.

Can leg cramps cause bruising?

Generally not

Bruise
'Routine' muscle cramping is not linked to bruising.However if u stained a muscle(partially tore it) then the bruising and swelling which can occur is sometimes associated w/involuntary muscle cramping.Good Luck!
