Discussions that mention potassium

Back Problems board

Hi, I have had leg (calf) cramps since I was about 12 yrs. old....I have found that taking one Potassium tablet at night prevents it. They are not expensive at all....I get mine at WalMart!! Some doctors don't want to have you one Potassium, but I don't care....one tablet has done wonders for me! I also take a couple calciums per day, in addition to other vitamins. But it was the Potassium that prevents the cramps!
I sometimes get cramps. I eat a banana, it too is good for potassium.. But can be hard on my GERD at times. :bouncing:
