Hmmm I’m no expert but have had that before… Try eating a banana or have small amount of Gatorade before bed. A lot of times the cramping is due to lack of potassium, so anything to help elevate potassium level but perhaps @pamelaspence could add her expertise?

Thanks @kaneary! Sorry to hear you have a problem with cramp @mandy.lodge91 . It’s often to do with magnesium deficiency and that’s definitely something easy to try first of all. There was a long thread on this a while ago - maybe you can search for magnesium and get to that?

Essentially though, most of us are now magnesium deficient even if we eat a healthy diet. Low magnesium can cause insomnia, anxiety and leg cramps and if that is the issue then the good news is that it’s an easy fix!

Magnesium is available in many forms but magnesium glycinate is thought to be the best at helping with sleep. Many of my patient find their leg cramps disappear once their magnesium level is sorted so it’s definitely worth a try!

Hope that helps!
