Hey! Anyone have cramps in their arch/calf inside their cast? I'm getting them off and on and it's not like I can weight bear to make them go away. So scared they will become Charlie horses which for me only get better with weight and I can't do that! I'm drinking fluids, eating extra potassium, etc. It's painful in those areas as well as in my ankle where the surgery was done! Oh and I take a muscle relaxer at night for the twitching/jerking and it relieves that, but not the cramps!
I can only try to imagine how painful that is. Do you have room to squeeze a back scratcher in? Maybe you could apply some bores sure from that. I hope you figure something out soon. How much longer till you get the cast off?

HEIDI--It is painful! Thankfully I'm supposed to get my cast off on Monday and move into the boot! Bittersweet time b/c I'm ready to get it off so I can shave, exfoliate and moisturizer my leg and foot, but scared b/c I love the protection i get in the boot! Plus scared to walk! And what were saying about applying with the back scratcher? I didn't quite understand! I'm sorry!
LURCHY--yeah I was surprised too! However the muscle relaxant is probably what is keeping them from becoming full blown Charlie horses which is good! I'm drinking Gatorade, eating bananas!
