Leg Cramps!

Friday, September 21, 2012

Several nights this week I've been experiencing leg cramps. Last night's leg cramp in my right calf was one of the worst I've had in a long time. I know that dehydration can bring on cramps, so I'm trying to increase my water intake. I'm also trying to walk more. Have to research and find out if any vitamin deficiency can cause them, too.

    Do not forget to take a list of any and all medications complete with amount.

Also your supplements Brand and strength.

Do it up on your computer and save it. That way you can always have it at your fingertips and if one is added put the date ON and if you stop taking it Date it.
I print off my list and MY PCP writes on it if there is a change or sometimes they ask to keep it in their notes. emoticon way to go.
Thanks to Spark people I am off all medications. A!C was 8.8 and now 5.4 Pat
