Those damn leg cramps

Well, its 4 AM! I am wide awake. My legs are hurting again. They are all cramped up!
Its definitely the zyprexa that is causing it. This is only my second night taking it though. Maybe sarah my cpn is right, if I wait it out and continue to take it for the weekend perhaps the cramping will subside. I really hope so.
I cant sleep because I cant keep my legs still. I tried to put a pillow underneath them like my blog friend Bee suggested, but I still kept moving them it was involuntary too, I just couldnt keep them still. RLS or restless leg syndrome I’d say.
So now I am reading blogs. I also made some food and took a shower. I thought the hot water might relax them. It seems to have done the trick. I am feeling a lot calmer now and my legs arent hurting as much.
At least I have nowhere to go today, so later on this morning I can sleep if I need to sleep. Or maybe not, lol. Me and sleep we arent on good terms right now!

  2. Cramps can be really annoying :/ They scare me every time, even though I usually predict one a few secinds ahead. I hope they’ll go away soon for you or at least lessen a bit.

  3. I get night time leg cramps as well. I find taking magnesium is helpful in lessening the number and severity. I hope you can get some relief from them. Mine isn’t caused by medication, but by tight muscles.

  4. Hi, sorry to hear! Like said before, magnesium helps with these symptoms. Take it in the evening/afternoon/after exercise, it helps muscles to relax. Hope it helps xx
