Sadly I don't have any remedies for the cramps other than trying to weight them and walk it off, but I definitely feel your pain! I get them regularly in my calves, feet, and occasionally in my upper legs. Seems worse if I've really been using the muscles, like climbing scaffold and lot's of walking. Mine seem to have started after I began taking a medication for high cholesterol, but that might have been a coincidence? Seems worse too if I get a little dehydrated, so make sure you drink lot's of water. Aint no fun, that's for sure!So I have been having leg cramps in my upper legs. Does anyone have leg cramps and what do you do to prevent/relieve them? Looking for solutions YOU personally have used that have worked.
I'll second That!Hmmm. Maybe try adding Gatorade to the mix.
Good advice. Someone tried to market a pickle sports drink. And bananas, can't go wrong. Even come wrapped.Drinking dill pickle juice can offer fast relief due to the high sodium content. I've tried it in the past and it works pretty well. Also eating a banana can sometimes help because of the potassium they contain. Both have worked for me. Good luck!
