I have been the WORST Charley horses. I mean I am in so much pain I'm screaming and crying. I eat bananas and drink orange juice every day. I've tried every way of "stopping" it from ice packs, heating pads, pointing my toes, stretching my leg, anything and everything that people have mentioned.
Does anyone have any other ideas. It is so bad I get them about once a week but the soreness lasts for about 3 to 4 days afterwards.
Calcium and magnesium. When I did the Atkin's diet (AWFUL! But I was 20 and it worked super quickly so I stayed on it way too long) I would get the most terrible leg cramps. Taking a supplement helped almost immediately. At least now I know how to keep them at bay during pregnancy, but I wouldn't recommend that terrible diet to anyone!
