Discussions that mention potassium

Fibromyalgia board

I do get muscle spasms in my legs and arms, in my neck alot more than any where else, I hate taking the soma it makes me so groggy.

The thing about the eye twitching,Ive had that on and off since I was a teenager, Ive had a number of doctors say it was vitamin thing, but taking a vitamins never did anything. It can last in me for afew hours or days. I put a hot compact on it when it starts, more of keeping from feeling helpless than it doing anything.

The leg cramping can be dehydration,or a lack of potassium in the diet, if I seem to be getting alot of them I eat bananas, it does help some. Some people say If you drink tonic water (has a small amount of quinine in it) that will help also. Vitamin b's can help also to a small degree.
