Leg cramps & muscle spasms
2 Replies
donnap - July 7

I've had terrible cramps and muscle spasms in my right leg for the past 24 hrs. Flexeril helps for a few hours and then, bam, I'm miserable again. The cramping even woke me up last night after only 4 hrs of sleep (and that was with an Ambien in me). The cramping is in the back of my right leg and right buttock. The spasms are strong enough that I can watch my leg jump in 3 areas. Geesh! I have an appointment with a Rheumatologist in September for a workup. Do any of you suffer with periodic leg cramps & muscle spasms? Both legs at once, or just one? What helps you? I'm heading for a hot tub hoping it will help. Thanks to any of you who can offer some insight. I'm learning so much by reading your input on this web site.

i've had leg cramps and spasms also. i think they're triggered by the sciatic nerve. try putting ice packs on your right buttock for 15-20 min along with advil or ibuprophen. it seems to help for a little while.
