Unhappy Muscle cramps

My husband has been experiencing severe muscle cramps lately after he works outside and prespires alot in this florida sun. He mentioned it to the dr. on his last visit, but I believe there was a miscommunication. The dr. prescribed waterpills! Does anyone have suggestions as to what supplement he can take? Thanks

Hi Mymeme, your husband MAY be experiencing deficiencies or imbalances in one/or several vitamins: potassium/sodium, magnesium, and/or calcium. Lack of adequate fluids (NOT soda and/beer, preferably water) MAY also cause this, as can hormonal imbalances.
good luck!
