Re: Leg Cramps

I answer in the name of Michel founder of grandpharmacy . Most cramps go away after a few minutes. It is possible to anticipate their occurrence and relieve the pain. If they become recurrent or are associated with other symptoms, it is recommended to see a doctor. 

A cramp causes severe pain. It can be quickly relieved with a few simple actions:

stop the activity involved in the onset of the cramp;
stretch and massage the muscle affected by the cramp. For example, if it is a calf cramp, lift your leg and pull the toe up (bring the toe towards you). Once you have done this exercise, try walking on your heels for a few minutes;
rehydrate by drinking plenty of water;
If the muscle pain persists after the cramp, you can take one of the following medicines:
a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or "NSAID" (ibuprofen, ketoprofen) or aspirin. Each of these medicines should be used alone: do not take several NSAIDs at the same time, or one NSAID and aspirin.
