A friend of mine that suffered from severe leg cramping found out recently that magnesium works. She had always thought it was potassium that made a difference. Talk with your doctor and maybe magnesium would work. The first day she took it she noticed a difference and the second night she slept through the night with no cramps. She suffered a long time and it was as simple as taking magnesium twice a day. I am not sure the dosage, but I want to say 250 mg twice a day. I would highly recommend you speak with your doctor before trying it though. It may not be for you.

I had/have leg cramps at night too. It turns out that a medication I take, has a possible side effect of lactic acidosis or hyperacidosis (causing leg cramps), which can be serious. This is nothing to take lightly, so I agree -- you need to bring this up to your doctor. In the meantime, stay hydrated -- lots of water frequently. I would not suggest taking ANY supplements until you have a blood analysis done by your doctor, so as not to overload with something you may not even need.
You really need medical advice.... call your doctor.

I get severe leg cramps at least a couple times a week. I have to stand up and press my legs or walk to get them to go away. Walking is almost impossible when I have them but I have to walk anyway. Anybody know how to stop them?
