  6. Why does my leg cramp?

    Leg cramps, also known as nocturnal cramps or calf muscle cramps, are a fairly common ailment. In some people, convulsions are also noted in the muscles of the hips. In most cases, they occur either during sleep or during rest.

    Seizures occur suddenly, as a result of involuntary muscle contraction. As a rule, they last for several minutes, and sometimes only a few seconds. Very rarely, seizures can last up to 10 minutes. Often the pain is so strong that a person wakes up and after the cramps run out, it can still be painful for almost a day.

    In most cases, the cause of the calf muscles can not be established, and this malaise is considered harmless. However, sometimes pain can be caused by diseases such as diabetes or peripheral arterial disease.

    With age, we become more prone to this disease: one in three among people older than 60 years and half of those over 80 experience leg cramps. Pregnant women suffer more often than not pregnant women. Approximately 40 percent of people who experience nocturnal seizure of leg muscles experience them at least three times a week, and sometimes every day.

    What causes seizures?

    Unknown causes (idiopathic seizures). In most cases, there is no apparent reason for them, and we can not reliably find out why this is happening. Theoretically, when the muscle is shortened for a long period, it shortens, and this stimulates its further contraction. Most often this happens during sleep, when we are in a natural position with legs slightly bent at the knees, with feet lowered down (which leads to shortening of the calf muscles). The fact that stretching helps solve this problem makes its theoretical basis even more difficult to solve.

    Secondary signs. Sometimes the spasms of the calf muscles are a consequence of some disease, situation or activity, namely:

    * Exercise such physical exercises, in which the muscle is under heavy load or for a long time is in work, can lead to convulsions either during stress, or even after it is removed. Athletes and people engaged in physical training often experience leg cramps, especially when they are physically affected longer than planned, which can be observed during a football match, at the added time.
    * At an elevated temperature of the surrounding air, when athletes sweat profusely and lose a lot of salt, the risk of muscle cramps increases.
    Addison's disease
    * Alcoholism or excessive alcohol use
    * Cirrhosis of the liver
    * Diarrhea
    * Taking diuretics
    * Electrolytic imbalance
    * Flattening
    * Operation of gastric bypass
    Hypofunction of the thyroid gland
    Chronic renal failure
    * Lead poisoning
    * Sarcoidosis is a disease in which granulomatosis (small tumor formation) leads to infection or swelling of the tissues of any part of the body
    * Muscular fatigue
    * Diseases of motor neurons
    * Receiving contraceptives
    * Parkinson's disease
    Disease of peripheral arteries
    Pregnancy (especially at a late stage)
    * Some medications, such as diuretics, salbutamol (used to treat asthma) and statin (used to lower blood lipids)
    * Type 2 diabetes

  7. from fatigue and overexertion
  8. Not potassium, but CALCIUM !! !! Potassium is a good conductor of nerve impulses, when the amount of calcium in the blood decreases, its place is occupied by potassium and sodium, and the risk of seizures increases accordingly ...
