Do you mean quite severe cramping in the calves? I wake up with it sometimes. It's due to dehydration - it's common after drinking alcohol too! My problem is I try not to drink too much water after 8pm so I'm not going to the loo all night, but the upshot is I get these cramps sometimes.
Yeah they seem to just come from nowhere. I'll try drinking a bit more water, if thats possible - it's my first weigh in on Wednesday and after how much I've been needing the loo I'm hoping for something fantastic. Thanks for the response and advice
I'm doing working solution and have had the most awful leg cramps. I was going to go and see the doctor this week if it didn't go away. I'm drinking about 3l water a day and I don't add salt to any of my food normally as I can't stand it, so not keen on doing that now. =(
cramps can be caused by low sodium levels in your body. Salt contains sodium, which is why is it often recommended to prevent cramps. Too much salt is of course bad for you, but your body needs a bit of salt to survive!
