Yes- definitely drink more water, as well as eat some more calcium. Since I've added more milk/dairy to my diet I haven't gotten them lately.

Yes, I got them a couple of times. I started drinking more water and eating a banana a day, for the potassium. It definitely helps. I haven't gotten one in a while now.

Definitely increase your potassium. I swore by bananas when I was pregnant.

Re: leg cramps while sleeping

WHen I wake up with them I try and walk on them. Even if its painful if I stretch the muscle and get it moving, the cramp goes away in a few minutes.

Re: leg cramps while sleeping

I get them all the time in my calf while im sleeping, wakes me right up. At first i would just hold my leg tight and wait for it to end, But when i told my doctor i get them, she said when it starts to move my ankle in a circular motion and get the muscle moving, I tried it and it worked so well, ends my cramps in a few seconds. Couldnt believe it actually works.

Same here. When I was pregnant with my daughter, I got the worst leg cramps until I started eating a banana everyday, never got another leg cramp!
