My roomate is in desperate need of some advise on how to deal with his recurring musle cramps. He is an older male in his late 40's. He works 9-12 hour days, is very active. For the past month he has been waking several times throughout the night with severe, often debilitating muscle cramps in various limbs. These cramps last anywhere from seconds to several minutes. During the cramps, his veins pop out, and the affected limb is severly contorted. He has seen his doctor, and apparently, his blood tests have shown no deficiencies or abnormalities.
His doctor has no idea what is the cause of his cramps.
Please Help. I often hear him screaming in the middle of the night. I'm helpless, and he look like he is suffering severly.
