leg cramp that won't go away? blessed with girls x5 Due December 25 (girl); 4 kids; Wisconsin 6323 posts

Last night I woke up to the worst leg cramp of my life. I jumped out of bed screaming. My leg still hurts this morning and it is very tender. Is this normal? I read that if the leg pain is persistent you need to call the dr. But I was thinking maybe it just hurts because the cramp was so bad...

Try eating some bananas. If your potassium levels are low it will cause painful leg cramps and bananas are full of potassium. Its always worked for me. My aunt swears by drinking tonic water before bed because the quinine in it will stop legs cramps but I cant stand the taste of it.

ahhh the pregnant charlie horse. Those suck. I got them at least once a week, and I would ache for like 2 days. Roll your foot around to stretch it out, and yes, bananas
