What to do for leg pain after 3 nights of leg cramps?

See PCP: Even though i'm a pm;r spine/pain specialist, i would personally recommend a patient see their pcp to rule out any vascular issue if the physical exam i perform doesn't look like there is any spinal issues (pinched nerves) that can quite commonly cause leg cramps. An MRI would help to look at the spine, but your pcp may be able to do some vascular studies if they deem appropriate. ...Read more

Leg : 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
