CRAMPS

Hi, I have been getting cramp quite frequently in my arms and legs ( mostly left sided). Any suggestions what I can do/take to help this? Not on any medication, tried simple painkillers but they aren’t effective. Many thanks x

Rosie,

I take Baclofen to reduce spasm as my spasm can lead to cramp. I also take Qunine sulphate to help reduce cramp. I drink tonic water and I can now reduce the instances of bad cramp with relaxation and breathing. Sounds daft but has helped me.

Magnesium helped ease problems with spasm & cramp for me and is a beneficial mineral, so no harm in trying. Try a few gentle stretches too.

Thanks for the suggestions folks x

I have just started to take magnesium.I was getting really spasms and stiffness in my legs. It really does seem to be helping!
