Soaking in the bathtub with Epsom salts for a few minutes before bed help. I had the same problem and that really helped.
Helps, darn predictive text on the iPad drives me nuts :-)
I've never been able to find a good solution to it. I always have it but when I'm pregnant, it gets terrible!! At night is the worst because you are trying to sleep. I just have to get up and walk around and do some leg stretches. Sometimes it takes a while for it to go away but walking does help some. I've never found a way to completely eliminate it though. Good luck.
I had this and it just about drove me bonkers. What seemed to work best for me was sitting on the edge of the tub and running water as hot as I could stand just over my legs. I would then put on wool socks. I guess keeping them warm made the difference. I also found it to be worse when I was tired or sitting for long stretches. The good news is, once I delivered it stopped. Good luck.
thanks for the advice! I posted the same question on another board, and someone there suggested I make sure I drink enough water. I've been trying to up my fluid intake since then and ... it just might be helping a bit!
It really is the strangest affliction.
Oh it is just awful! It seriously drove me nuts. I hope you find a solution that works for you, and that it ends.
