leg cramps

severe leg cramps from heck today. anyone else? It is probably adding to my irritated mood. the principal and another teacher both asked if I was ok today. Iguess I looked htat bad? I had a cramp in one leg starting this morning so I had dh rub my leg to get it to subside. it worked. then I rolled over to turn my alarm off and it was instant severe cramps in the OTHER leg. my legs have both been sore since. anyone else having this issue?

Thank goodness no! Had them pretty bad with DD, but none so far. I am hoping to skip that unpleasantness. The only advice I can give is to stretch, otherwise that is all I got!

Ugh, sorry you are having those...I know how bad it hurts. I'm only having mild leg cramps so far. I had the really bad ones that jolt you out of a deep sleep with DS1. They always left my leg sore too.

I have been getting them when I wake up for the past few days. I have been eating bananas (YUCK) but it's not working.

Ya, isn't that a potassium thing? Eat more bananas maybe?

Not this pregnancy but with Tori they were horrifying. I remember when they were over I would be sore for days, like I had a tough workout! Yuck. I hope they let up for you!

I wake myself up probably every other night with charlie horses in my calves. I got the worst yet 2 nights ago and my leg is still sore. Hate this part.

I know they say eat more bananas but I cant sTAND them (aka will be sick if I do) but I have been eating kiwi which is supposed to have 2x the potassium as a banana.... not helping. I woke up with them AGAIN this morning though it was jsut the start of a cramp rather than a full blown one. I mostly sat yesteday at work...looks like its goign to be another day like that!

i just get sore and achy all over, and im in bed all day. no cramps yet thank goodness, when i was teaching dance and on point i got them horribly to the point where my mom had to come in my room and help me. I ended up having to sleep in my boots so i wouldn't point my toes in my sleep or they would come right back. i remember how horrible that was, i hope they let up for you soon.
