How long have you taken the supplements?  It can take a while to get caught up if you are deficient in a mineral.  

Carbonated drinks can cause reduced potassium and magnesium levels which can lead to muscle spasms and cramps.

You might try adding in magnesium, about 600mg / day and Vitamin D (at least 1,000 mg/day.  Take Vit D and magnesium at different times of the day as Vitamin D inhibits absorbtion of the magnesium. Mag and calcium work together, so stick with the calcium.

Also, make sure you are well hydrated and have sufficient sodium intake.  If you still have the cramps after all this, it would be a good idea to go see a doctor to see if there is an underlying medical condition.

You could try some Carbo.Veg.30, I'm now on this, its takes about 8 weeks to kick in fully, now for a tricky one, its Borax acid, you take a 1/4 teaspoon in a litre of water and drink through the day, this will open up your veins and help blood flow, you can read up about Borax on earthclinic just put it in there search box, or just google it, when you buy your Borax get from the chemist.
Good Luck

You need potassium. Eat a banana everyday and that should help. did you try apple cider vinegar? You only need a capful once a day. I hope this will help yo

I have been taking supplements for many years and stay hydrated, i take potasium and vitimin d 5000iu, and viniger with local honey ad raisiens. My salt intake maybe a little low and i do not take magnesium. I just started a mega vitiman.

I still think you may have diabetes. If I were you, I'd go to a hospital and do some tests, just to make sure everything's ok with my pancreas. It can't hurt, can it?

It is better to take a banana for potassium instead of relying on supplements.Also figs and melon help.
Do some light exercises as well.
Some deep breathing through the nose will help(more than 5 minutes).

READ THIS BEFORE USING BORAX...from about chemistry . com
Borax is natural, but that does not mean it is automatically safer for you or for 'the environment' than man-made chemicals. Although plants need boron, too much of it will kill them, so borax can be used as an herbicide. Borax may also be used to kill roaches, ants, and fleas. In fact, it is also toxic to people. Signs of chronic toxic exposure include red and peeling skin, seizures, and kidney failure. The estimated lethal dose (ingested) for adults is 15-20 grams; less than 5 grams can kill a child or pet. For this reason, borax should not be used around food. More commonly, borax is associated with skin, eye, or respiratory irritation. It is also important to point out that exposure to borax may impair fertility or cause damage to an unborn child.
