Get Cramps very easily

Jan 22, 2004

My health is pretty good. Age 63 and do about 20 minutes of exercise, arm weights, cycling and fott exercises. Have Peripheral Neuropathy (with no pain). I seem to be able to get cramps at nght if not careful how I turn in my bed. Any ideas?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Try taking 500 mg twice a day of magnesium plus 500 mg twice a day of calcium (some brands bring both together). Let me know what happens. Also, if you are taking Crixivan, thsi drug has been known to increase muscle cramps. Make sure you are driking enough water since dehydration can also cause this problem. Talk to your doctor about this, though.


very interesting
