Muscle cramps



just wondering does any get a lot of muscle cramps?

I get them a lot arms legs and back. I seem to go through stages of the odd one a day then doesn’t matter what I do a slight movement just simply trying to get up or reach out for something seems to bring them on, so if anyone else has similar or did have similar any advice on how to minimise this would be great as they are very painful.

Thanks Alan

    Hello @Alansrac and welcome to the Community.

    I've started getting cramps in bed at night in my calves. I found this on the NHS site

    I find that getting up helps, but it does make for a disturbed night's sleep.

    Hope you find something that helps you.

    Hi @Alansrac,

    I get referred pain and leg cramps from my knees and find a hot wheatbag and/or a deep tissue massaging gun helps to provide some relief, they're also less frequent if I'm active so most of my discomfort seems to be at night and first thing in the morning.
