Solution To Overcome Calf Cramps?
I am a man aged 25, just now I had cramps in the right calf after sitting cross-legged with pressure from the elbows to the calves and thighs, when depressed with the elbows, the legs felt like electrocuted. the cramps that I experience in my calf are different from what I usually experience in my whole legs. if my usual leg cramps can be overcome by stretching. but this time the cramps still don’t want to disappear, cramps are felt from below the knee to the top of the ankle and are more pronounced in the front or in the shin and less noticeable in the back. The cramps have been missing for hours. please the solution.
Hello Andi, Thank you for the question.
Leg cramps can be caused by the following things:
blood flow disorders due to pressure on the limbs (for example sitting cross-legged, resting hands) stress on the spinal cord injury lack of potassium, calcium, magnesium dehydration diabetes mellitus thyroid hormone disorders In addition to light muscle stretching and resting, you can also do foot massage the cramps and warm compresses on the legs that cramp regularly. Make sure you keep your intake of water at least 2-3 liters per day. You can also take paracetamol or other pain relievers. If that way you still experience cramps, you should immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. An examination by a doctor is needed to determine the cause of this complaint before providing further treatment for you.
I hope this helps.
