So after being woken up very early this morning with a painful cramp in my calf, I have to ask: Can anybody explain why I am getting muscle cramps and what I can do to prevent them? I started having muscle cramps with my first pregnancy, but my youngest child is now 8 years old, so pregnancy cannot be my excuse anymore. My calf usually seizes up during the night or early morning. I have been noticing some minor cramps in my calf over the past week or so, but was able to just walk it off. Last nights however, was the full blown, wake-up Mr. Griffin, tears kind of cramp. I was once told it had to do with my lack of calcium (I have always had problems eating dairy). Any thoughts?
No announcement yet.
Muscle Cramps anyone?
