I am getting kind of beat up with muscle cramps occurring, they are such a nuisance. I’ve looked it up in the past but soon become snow-blinded with the vast theories. Not much help from the family doctor. I really don’t know what is going on but they seem to happen to pretty much any muscle.
They happen at the worst times too. For example, typically I first warm up really well and then grab a green band for maybe some hip extensions. Right when I reach the point where I’m getting some changes made… Whack, on the other side, my calf will cramp up. I have to immediately scramble to stand up.
I understand “it depends” but Is there anything out there that’s a fairly common approach to the problem?
So what have you tried so far? The ones listed on this page are interesting- do any apply to you:
What is your hydration like?
You make lack potassium, calcium or another mineral in your blood.
If you take medicine that could impact.
Do you have tight ankle plantar flexion? Is so working to anterior shin tissues may lessen cramping in hip extension stretch.
Thanks, I kind of think all roads point to groceries-in.
No medicines, living on basic Paleo stuff for 10 years or so. I do include occasional cheeses through the week though.
I am finishing my 3rd month of top to bottom, literally head to toe, mobility as actually my primary focus. With nothing surfacing as an insurmountable issue <whew>.
Regarding approach… Perhaps it is time for a supplement to catch up on minerals, the sweating it out factor has been maybe high. Tons of plain water hydration, 100oz per day, maybe getting washed-out. I saw the episode that mentioned optimizing plasma production, it sounds like a direction. Maybe that and a basic supplement not sure what though, is there a test?
Thanks again, Mike
