Nice to know fistlin thanks.
I get cramps in my legs what i do and it works for me is pinch my upper lip with my
index finger and thumb and continue to press firmly untill the cramp goes away. You must do this right away before the cramp gets to good a start has never failed me yet.
About a month ago I started getting bad leg cramps every night- especially in shins and ankles. It affected the nerves and it was extremely painful. I also would get RLS, that sensation of ants under the skin or muscle spasms and sometimes the spasms would trigger a cramp. I was given Xanax, which has helped a ton (only to take before bed time which I do) And I also take Hylands leg cramps Pm. Those work (I think) because I haven't woken up in pain with any toe or leg cramps. I stretch good and I also apply heat to my calves and shins every night- just lay a heating pad on them while watching tv. Some evenings I also drink tonic water mixed with OJ. AND I fell for the whole bar of soap at the foot of the bed thing- I have a bar of soap under the sheet at the foot of the bed. That is how desperate I was!! But oil of olay has magnesium in it which helps with muscles. I also take a high potency magnesium in the evening with a Calcium and D3 vitamin.

I found out I am anemic a week ago- been taking a lot of iron supplements, which could help with all of this. But the RLS is still there at night-- just that spasm type sensation- doesn't hurt but comes and goes. But I have been sleeping much better since the Xanax.
I also clench my teeth pretty bad too, waiting on a custom guard from my dentist. My doc said the Xanax will help with that. I am too afraid to not take anything now- waking up with leg cramps is so painful for me that I panic and my heart races and I sweat... it's crazy

June- PRAISE GOD!! Yes, to Him be the Glory- I pray all the time He would take away my anxiety, I think my anxiety comes from the physical pain and not the other way around.
