Hello, Baker, it's nice to meet you! I am so sorry you are struggling with leg cramps, I had them alot when I was younger. I discovered some things that help. Warm blankets at night, water drinking where it's supposed to be, and sleep is very necessary. I know, too, about the sensitivity, mine was helped with vit. E, less caffeine, and sometimeope s ibuprofen. I sincerely hope the docs. can help you with what relief is needed. Bear in mind, they do not necessarily diagnose vitamins, so you may have to do some research on your own. Good luck!!!!!

Thank you for replying. I do take calcium; and magnesium and had even gotten an IV therapy for 4 weeks from the Naturopath, which did help, but isn't cheap by any means.
As far as my weight goes, not where I want it to be; but having an overactive bladder makes it hard to want to walk longer and gym membership isn't an option right now. emoticon

Wow, Bakergurl, we have so many similarities - IBS, leg cramps and possibly fibro. It's funny, I had all the sensitive areas that they test for but I don't get tired. My sister has fibro and chronic fatigue. She will literally fall asleep at a moment!
For my leg cramps and spasms my doctor gave me a muscle relaxer. The fibro is still up in the air. They want to see how I am with the weight off because in my case, not yours since you are thin, he wonders if the added weight is causing me pain.
In the meantime I am saying I don't have fibro - I don't want it!!! I will get the weight off and take it from there. I am hoping a lot will improve with my weight loss.
Good luck at the doctors.
In the meantime before you go to the doctors - track your foods - if your potassium or magnesium is low that can also cause cramping. They most likely will check for that first anyhow. Mine is always extremely low so I take supplements and TRY to eat foods high in both.

I suffer often from from leg cramps; and an overactive bladder, especially at night. emoticon
Being newly married, hard on both of us when I have to keep getting up so much at night.
I am hoping to see if my doctor will agree to test me for fibromyaglia too, often have times when I feel so tender, don't want to be touched.
