Leg cramps!!

I've been waking up in the middle of the night with awful leg cramps! Eaten bananas but doesn't help much, any help??

  • My midwife suggested supplementing magnesium. I already take 200mg/day and she suggested upping it to 1-2g/day if I start having cramping. You can also absorb magnesium from epsom salt baths.

  • This is exactly what I'm dealing with now. I wake up around 5am with leg cramps. It's just getting worse.
    Thanks for some suggestions. I also read being dehydrated can cause them.
