It sounds like some sort of dietary imbalance, but thats just a wild guess. Do you drink enough water?
I'm 38, I am overweight but have been for years and actually lost 25 lbs last year and this muscle cramping issue is rather recent, just in the past few months. It could be a dietary imbalance- I've been trying to add in foods that I don't normally eat (whole foods) in an effort to maybe hit the magic nutrient. I drink about 2-1/2 liters of water a day. More if I'm exercising. I only drink one cup of coffee a day, and no juice, alcohol, or soda. I may have had some luck yesterday- I made an effort to eat and drink foods that contained all the electrolytes- I ate a banana, drank coconut juice, took a liquid Cal/Mag/D supplement and ate shake-n-bake pork chops (sodium, haha). Today I'm not having the muscle cramps...yet.
If this keeps up I'm going to ask for blood tests.
Thanks for the reply. If anyone else has any ideas, I'm all ears.
