leg cramps Lock Rss

Can anything be done to relieve/eliminate lag cramps?

i had my first bad one last week of this pregnancy and about 24 weeks....and was the only real annoying thing I had with other pregnancy?

Not a life threatening problem but painful just the same.

Hi,
Thank you for your enquiry. Leg cramps are an unfortunate side effect during pregnancy. You can try yoga, elevating your legs above your heart at least once a day, ensuring an adequate fluid intake and perhaps try a sport drink or two to replace minerals, bananas are also helpful to replace potassium.
Best wishes,
Alex.
