Woman with Leg CrampsDifferent people, different triggers, different roads to leg cramp relief.

Ellen was worried she wouldn’t be able to stand in line at a big sale to buy her granddaughter a special doll. “My legs feel creepy-crawly, and become agitated when I stand for a long time,” she says. “I look like I’m dancing a jig.”

It’s a different problem for Ellen’s sister, Carol. “Sitting drives me crazy. I can’t sit still at my desk,” she says. “People think I’m hyperactive.”

Just the right dose of exercise can help too!

Exercise can work wonders, but timing and the right amount are key.  
In any group of people suffering from agitated legs, the talk soon turns to exercise. There is something about exercise that seems to release the energy that creates the need to move your legs.  Most people report that regular “mild to moderate” exercise is a big help, but many say working out too vigorously aggravates symptoms. Trying different levels of exercise is the best way to know what works for you.  Since symptoms are typically worst at night, late afternoon or evening exercise may be best, but morning or mid-day workouts are also effective.  Focus on lower body exercise such as running, biking or swimming. Prefer teammates or partners? Try tennis, basketball or soccer. Like classes? Try yoga, Pilates, step aerobics or dance.
What about when you are already in bed and symptoms kick in, no pun intended? Try this mini, in-bed leg workout.
1.  Lying on your back, hold the ball of one foot, point it upward and extend your leg as far as you can. Hold it just at the edge of pain.
2.  On your knees, lean back stretching the tops of your thighs. See if you can touch your heels.
3.  Still on your knees, fold all the way forward.

Any way you choose to exercise, a dose of MuscleAches/Cramps #44 will help minimize the strain and pain, thus making it easier to stick with the program.
