My husband has been having Thigh Spasms on a weekly bases. Actually, it is starting to occur every couple of days. What can I do to help? He fell of the couch screaming in agony and I had no clue how to help. What should I do? Is there something I can do? He won't let me touch him when he is in pain, I figured I could have tried to massage it out, but he swats me away and continues to scream.

If you know what I can do...PLEASE, email me at drteegarden@msn.com.
Thank you,
DP23

  • His condition could be caused by a number of reasons. I'd first try to make him drink more water.(and i mean H2O pure;) ) Dehydration oftentimes causes cramps especially in the legs and would also increase viamin D, C and Potassium levels along with B6 & B12. A multivitamin should do the trick, and it is important to follow directions on the bottles because it is possible to overdose on some vitamins!!! A professional massage when he is not in pain would be of benefit also, as it increases the circulation and promotes self healing. I would make sure that the therapist is nationally certified and licensed though. (Some states do not require this and anybody can call himself a therapist there!) If that does not work I'd suggest a visit to the doctor to check for circulatory problems, nerve damage...etc.Hope that helps:) Nahamira

  • Don't forget the magnesium!You might want to try a calcium, magnesium, zinc supplement. Make sure he's getting a multivitamin daily.Low magnesium can cause muscle spasms and cramps.http://www.acu-cell.com/bx2.htmlThis website gives complete descriptions of what each vitamin and mineral does and the symptoms of low/high doses of each.

  • Low Magnesium causes muscle spasms. Best way to take Magnesium is to take Homepathic Cell Salt called Magnesia Phos 6x. This way you don't have to worry about overdosing.
