Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board

Hi deb,

Lots of fibro people have leg cramps but that doesn't mean you have fibro. The rheumy should be of help. I know boosting your potassium and magnesium intake helps a bunch whatever the cause of the problem.

Good luck and let us know what you find out - Andy
I got them a lot when I was pregnant with both of my kids. My doc recommended getting more potassium, so I ate a lot more bananas.

Do you have RLS too? I have that and know that when the two act up together, I could scream. Very aggravating.

Hope you find a solution...do try the fruit.
