Question: hi .. i have leg cramps . Please suggest remedies.
Answer: Aches and pains during pregnancy are common, as are muscle cramps in your feet, thighs or legs, it is suspected that the expansion of the uterus may put pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the leg, causing leg cramps and some occasional pain.
If a cramp strikes, try stretching the affected limb or muscle. Straighten your leg with your toes coming towards you; ask your partner to help, if you need it.
Standing up to let your leg stretch may also offer some relief. If the painful cramps persist, convince your partner to give you a massage, or book a professional massage and enjoy the relaxation time, the rest will do you good.
Diet can make a difference, too. Some nutritionists believe that calcium, potassium and phosphorous supplements can relieve the cramping but make sure you speak to your doctor before taking any supplement. A healthy diet, including fresh fruit and green leafy vegetables, plus enough calcium-rich foods, such as milk, cheese or yoghurt, will also help.
