== == Leg cramps may be a sign that you are not eating enough of a certain mineral. Ask your Doctor about this problem. This is generally indicative of a lack of calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), or potassium (K) in the diet. You can distract these electrolytes best from whole foods/vegetables, rather than trying to get them from synthetic, isolated vitamins. Also, watch the amount of sugars in your diet, especially simple sugars/junk food. This junk keeps your body's insulin levels very high. A prolonged internal environment such as this causes insulin resistance. If your body starts becoming resistant to insulin, it loses the ability to store both calcium and magnesium. (It is a little known fact that insulin not only moves glucose into cells, but it is an anabolic hormone which stores Ca and Mg.)

Well, you can rest your legs for a couple of hours on a chair or you can strech it and bend it again and again.

Rub some lotion on your legs. Or try using better shaving cream.

Try placing heat (such as a heating pad) where you are cramping. Or you could try those hot patches.

There is no problem with your leg! I get this all the time, when crossing your legs, you stop blood flow so its good to remember to switch legs!

Look on the package to see what it says and also ask a pharmacist. Usually cramping of muscles is due to a problem with electrolyte imbalances.

The strong cramping are called braxton hix contractions. Which are false labor pains. A lot of my friends had this. You also want to watch for severe leg cramps in the tops of your legs. This is a very rare labor pain, but it is a labor pain. Talk to your doctor.

in my case, my legs got swollen and even after going back to diuretic, my legs still swollen and the doctor who told me to stop does not have an answer how or what to do to let the swelling go away.

Totally normal to have cramping before and after
