Leg cramps
 
I've had cramps and pains in my calf muscles for the past two mornings. I feel like I've been out running (which I certainly haven't been) and still feel stiffness when I'm walking through the day. Anyone else?

I'm having more trouble with it at night than I am in the day and I'm trying to eat more potassium to help.

If your cramps are affecting a large area, I'd try potassium and hydration to see if that helps (think bananas and buckets of water) but if the cramping/tenderness/pain is very localized, or if it is turning red or hot to touch, tell your Dr. right away as it might be a clot.

Hope you feel better soon, that sounds really distracting.

I got them with my first bad, my OB suggested me eating bananas and make sure I'm drinking tons of water.
