I know Pepper, the cramping is horrible!! I wish none of us had to go through any of this. At this point, my cramping is worse in all my leg parts and hands. My back is less so. My back usually spasms when I start walking as does my rear and backs of thighs. But Im still getting the bad cramps all over even while doing nothing and have no answer for it yet. And the Soma and Lyrica are not really helping much. Good luck to you, too..and remember - Baby steps!!
