:(For about a month, I have been jolted out sleep with severe, painful muscle spasms in the ankle and foot area. Have to try standing until my ankle feels like it will support me and then walk around until it goes away. Dr. dismisses it as normal charleyhorse, but potassium supplements do not help. Any ideas?
