What is a possible diagnosis of muscle cramps in the legs and absence of reflex?

Now how about an answer from someone who knows how painful and

annoying leg cramps can be? Read below:

Having had "charley horse" cramps since I was quite young I have

looked for answers to this question for years. I found out that

there are two things that are believed to cause muscle cramps. Low

potassium is one and dehydration is the other. I read this in

several web sites and/or medical "lifestyle-type" books. I've been

told it is necessary to eat a banana(a good source of potassium)

every day. As for water( I read this on line)- I found that if I

drink about 12- 20 ounces of water several times a day-I don't have

cramps AND generally feel better anyway!

Although I have never read about this, I personally came upon

this solution myself:For several years now, I have found that

drinking a cup of warm milk relieved the cramps- I don't think

there is any reason for this-maybe it helped me to relax?

Hope this proves to be
