Cramps :: Leg And Foot Cramps

Jun 6, 2009

I've suffered from these for years. When I told the GP he prescribed 200mg quinine sulphate but I still had cramps - albeit fewer. so he prescribed 300mg tablets. I still get the cramps, perhaps not as frequently but it's quite distressing.

Leg cramps can be eased by standing on the leg and stretching it. Foot on the leg and stretching it. Foot cramps are quite different, my foot turns inwards and my toes turn position. Nothing but time can resolve it, my husband watches in amazement, as do I. It's quite painful.

A son says that lack of salt can cause cramps, might this be so? We have very low sodium chloride intake.

Thyroid Disorders :: Leg Foot And Toe Cramps

i have my lab results, and the same goes for me my dr. changed my prescription from .5 to .75, i think .75 is to strong for me so i talked him into me alternating .5 one day and .75 the next. i did this for 60 days and felt pretty good, i had leg cramps but not as severe as now. i am back up to .75 because  of my lab test showing me to have very high numbers. its pretty much just my right leg cramping , you can actually see the muscle tighten up starting at my lower calve and climb right up yo my knee. my foot contorts and stays like that  for a few minutes , its unbelievably painful. what should i change, I'm willing to do anything .

Thyroid :: Synthroid And Foot Cramps

Well, after a year and a half on Erfa Thyroid, I had to switch back to Synthroid because the heart pounding at night on the Erfa just kept getting worse and worse.

Of course, with the Synthroid I'm now back to having severe foot cramps all night; by that I mean that my foot twists around on the ankle and I have to stand up and push my foot down to get it to go back into position. Sometimes it's both feet at once. Try sleeping with that going on!

Not sure which side effect is worse, and I feel as though I can't win, since neither medication allows me to sleep.

My doctor doesn't believe that switching back to Synthroid would result in foot cramps and won't offer any help. When I was on Synthroid previously my old GP game me quinine sulphate, which keep the cramps down to once or twice a week, but this one won't prescribe it.

Has anyone else had this problem and found a solution? I take lots of calcium, magnesium, Vitamin D, and B vitamins, so I should be okay on that score.

Post Menopause Bleeding After Cramps Like Ovulation Cramps

I had what felt like ovulation cramps last week and tonight have vaginal bleeding, fresh blood not old.

I did this in 2012 after my mom died, was checked pap smear, uterine biopsy and I feel those hurt, it was all good, they thought it might of been stress related because it lasted only one day.

My abnormally normal periods were only 1-3 days, they were one coming in, one day of heavy bleeding, and spotting on third day. But every 28 days like clockwork with no issues there. In my 20's I was told I had endometriosis and when they went to do the ultrasound the cyst had went away. I didn't take it any further than that but never had children and never took birth control. Cramps were always very painful, had to curl up in a ball, always had severe back pain with them as well.

Last week they were like that not quite as bad but nearly.

Is this just a fluke you all think? Even menopause I had no symptoms, when I turned 50 it shut off like a faucet never again until 2012, and now.

Cramps :: Toes, Foot And Calf Muscle

its great to know i'm not going mad thinking i'm unique in this - i get cramp in my toes every single time i go to bed, if i dont try to nip it in the bud within a few minutes it moves to the rest of my foot and then to my calf muscle, i am wondering if i have a circulation problem, i did have Quinine for this and to be honest i noticed a reduction in the amount of times per week i got it then my husband said try an Aspirin which i did and noticed an aspirin in the morning then one at night reduced it even more than the quinine but, after a month of doing this, my cramps have increased to every night again whether i take aspirin or quinine, i am thin, relatively healthy but i am not a drinker of water so wonder if i should try that one next and maybe get hold of some concentrated Magnesium Citrate, i'll do anything to stop this, i even get it come on when driving and putting my foot on the gas pedal occasionally.

Menopause :: Stomach Cramps VS. Uterine Cramps

I'm having a hard time distinguishing between cramps from the intestines/stomach and slight cramps from my "female parts"... Sometimes I think that I have a regular stomach pain, but I'm wondering whether the pains could be slight cramping from my uterus instead? Right now I'm most likely just passed the ovulation and should have my period in about 13 days. Would slight cramping during this time be normal for someone in perimenopause?

Periods Cramps After Sex

So my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time and since it was a heated moment there wasn't protection involved. About an 1 1/2 later, I started to have pretty bad "period cramps". I usually have bad period cramps and heavy periods and my period is due very soon. What do these cramps mean? Are they just regular period cramps? (My period app says I should be getting my period today)

Cramps :: Overuse Of Muscles

They started a week ago, two days after a very strenuous run and arm workout. I don't run a lot and the exercise really wore me out and my quads were sore for a couple days. Then I started getting cramps in my left forearm and left anterior calf muscle (above the ankle). They come multiple times in the day simultaneously for about 5-10 seconds then fade away together as well. I've tried every home remedy(massaging, hot bath, stretches) and none have affected the frequency or intensity of the cramps.

I visited a primary care doctor who drew blood to check my electrolyte levels and gave my head a ct scan, both came back normal and they wrote me a script for Flexeril which helps me sleep but does not relieve the cramping.

The next day I visited a neurologist who gave me an EEG to confirm I was not experiencing partial seizures. He then put me through some basic strength tests and confirmed I wasn't experiencing strength loss in my affected limbs and said he didn't think He referred me to another neurologist who specializes in muscles to "make myself feel better" who I'm seeing Friday.

I've been able to rule out some scarier stuff with the CT scan and the fact that I haven't been feeling any weakness (other than soreness), or other symptoms other than the cramps themselves. Maybe it's a slipped disc? That's the only thing I've read that makes sense. This seems like too long a period for something as simple as an overworked muscle

Long story short, all the doctors I've seen haven't found anything other than overuse of muscles and long cramping. I'm hoping anyone who has experienced something similar or knows someone who has can provide any advice or insight into what's going on. Thanks!

Am I Pregnant? :: Light Cramps But Nothing Like My PMS

I was expected to get my Period 2 days ago . My periods are very regular. always on time ! They are always heavy and dark red and I get these unbearable cramps. 2 days ago when I was suppose to get my period I ended up dribbling brown spots of blood. Side note: my boyfriend and I had unprotected sex on my days of ovulation and he did ejaculate inside of me (unprotected)...

I thought since it was the first day that my cycle should have started I assumed it would get heavier within in a few hours .. It didn't. I've been spotting a light red blood for almost 2 full days.

Its not enough blood to fill a pad or tampon but when I go to urinate (which I've been doing like crazy recently) there will be a bit more blood then what's on my pad .

My breasts are tender. I've been having light cramps but nothing like my PMS ones. I'm extremely tired all the time and have no interest in food as I'm constantly nauseated . and I found that my nipples got a bit bigger. Could I be pregnant?

No Treatment From Cramps - Tried Everything Over Last 20 Years

i realise people are trying to be helpful but when it is said "i promise you or i guarantee you the cramps will stop if you take xyz...." i just tune out.  i have seen several specialists over the last 15-20 years without relief and last chance trying a muscle expert in the next couple of weeks.  started a diary of the amounts and types of cramps experiencing to give the doc a little picture of my life.  at 65 i can unhappily say i will not be here for a long time if i cannot get relief and a decent night's sleep.  at the moment i am lucky if i can get an 1 1/2 at a time before i am up under the shower or using a powerful hairdryer to heat the muscles into relaxing.  i am not depressed and have attempted throughout my life to put troubles behind and move forward positively.  Our children are all grown up and happy with their own family.   If this is my reality of life now my husband understands exactly how i feel and my desperation to find relief and peace.

Breast Pain And Getting Cramps

I'm a young teen. I recently been having a problem with my period. Which I never had before. I never get cramps or bloated. I am a few days late of this month. Earlier this month, I had sexual inter course for the first time. My partner did not go inside all the way. He pulled out before he ejaculated. So no sperm entered my uterus. From the beginning of when we started and when we ended, was from 3 to 5 minutes. It happened very quickly. Why is he reason why I am haven't had my period? Why do my breast start to hurt and I'm suddenly getting cramps, yet I have never gotten them before?

Sertraline :: Anxiety And Leg Cramps After Starting

I've been horribly depressed for the last six months after stopping Zoloft which I had been taking, successfully, for years. Thought I might not need it anymore but I definitely do.

I remember feeling horrible the first time I started taking Zoloft. I was nauseous, nervous, shaky, dizzy and had horrible anxiety. I was given an antianxiety medication to help me cope back then .

Today I just hit three weeks and have been titrating my dose each week to where I am now at the dose I had taken prior to stopping Zoloft. Overall I've had a bit of nausea but nothing like the first time. The symptoms that seem at their peak at the moment are chest gripping anxiety, a feeling of internal shakiness, and leg cramps.

Anyone had these symptoms and remember if, and when, they went away or what you did to cope with them?

I live by myself after being divorced and feel frozen a lot of the time. I think I'm suffering from PTSD due to traumatic events of the past.
Thank you!

I am a 14 year-old male.

My cycle is irregular to begin with. The last couple months it has gone from 34 days to 36 days to 35 days to 28 days to 30 days. I had my period on august second and wasn't suppose to get it until September 4th. I had sex on august 30th. I then got my period on September 1st. It lasted 5 days as normal but didn't seem as heavy to me. I have been getting dizzy, headaches, a little cramping and nauseous and very sleepy from time to time since last week. On the 13th and 14th I was spotting. Again yesterday and today I have felt sick and had a headache. I have been reading and some places say its not possible and other places say there's a chance I am pregnant. Someone please help me. Also how soon can I take a pregnancy test???
