    My hands cramp so badly at times. They'll do it at the same time. Both my thumbs go down and get stiff as a board. It hurts so bad that I almost panic. Different fingers cramp in all kinds of directions. Even worse are when my toes cramp up, I have to drop to the floor and just rub and rub. Woke up screaming 2 nights ago with cramps in both calves. That hasn't happened since I was pregnant.

    Somebody said to get more potassium. If anyone knows for sure what we can do to keep from having them all together, please share that information with us. Thank you so much.

    Wishing all a pain-free day,
