Potassium, magnesium, and apple cider vinegar helps me.

Research Pantothenic acid. I heard it was suppose to help with muscle cramps. Good luck.

I've heard that you get leg cramps when you are low in potassium. So try taking pill of potassium. Remember this is a hear say.

I agree with this suggestion. Plus I just heard from a friend of mine whose leg cramps stopped when she started eating a few dried apricots every night before bed. She heard it from her doctor and it worked! I was anxious to share this with those who shared this problem.

And never fear, dried apricots actually taste very good.  :star:

Stretching and mainly...WATER!!!  It's because of dehydration.  If you have a real bad problem with it, drinking pickle juice helps.  But getting enough water should take care of it.

I tried eating bananas-didn't work for me.  A tablespoon of mustard helps when I get leg cramps at night. Staying hydrated and taking a magnesium supplement works better for me than anything I've tried so far.

So far since I had my leg cramp experience, I've just been better at drinking more water.
I have not had a recurrence of the leg cramps--Yeah!

But if I do, I know where to come look for some helpful suggestions.....right here in the FC Forum.

I also have them also, I try more potassium and a friend  told me tonic water might help; get them mostly at night when I am asleep and just get up and walk them out or massage my legs. I will read the posts as some members may have some suggestions.
