Depending of severity and frequency of the symptoms of muscle cramps, the treatments can be invasive and non invasive. Some of us prefer to take medications to prevent-leg-cramps, or alternative medications, such as acupuncture or dry-needling.

    Muy interesante y útil, tu entrada.

  10. Another reason- slow blood circulation because of thickness of blood. Anyway, elastic socks or bandages might also help with these cramps .

  11. El potasio también es un elemento clave para evitar los calambres, ya que interviene en el control de la contracción muscular. Lo podemos encontrar en el plátano, aquí llamado banana

  23. Some good tips. While I do not get leg cramps I do suffer from RLS and depending on the severity, stretching helps with that as well.

  24. Stretching is good for many issues including leg cramps. I find eating bananas helps as well because of the potassium.

  25. Oh yes I get them because I take Vitamin 6 for carpel tunnel as this relives the excess fluid but that then causes the cramping at night...good advice here!
