Yeah I sometimes get mad cramps. Like to the point of complete loss of muscle control in my feet. Very painful, especially when coming down and still unable to sleep due to the constant cramping.
I've heard various things for why this happens. Some say dehydration, lack of potassium, lack of protein, lack of sleep, and preexisting circulation issues. I'd say all of these can play a role.
Prevention is the best way to deal with them. Once u got em they are hard to get rid of and any remedies often take time to work. First of all, stay hydrated, fed, and make sure u have a multivit or 2. Have some bananas at the very least to get your potassium. Discontinue use once cramping becomes serious. Sleep and absinence are the best cures at that point. Cramping worsen with dose and time without sleep. Keeping warm can help, as the cold can worsen circulation. Also avoid sitting in one position too long, sudden use of muscles can trigger a debilitating cramp, especially in the legs.
Beyond these basic prevention methods, some things can be taken to prevent or ease symptoms. Muscle relaxants
work really well. Benzo
's can be effective too. And though I don't reccommend it, many depressants
have the effect of relaxing the body and muscles, such as opiates
. The dangers associated with mixing stimulants
and depressants may turn you away from this, but they can be effective, if only to distract your mind and perhaps get some sleep.
I'm sure I've missed some, but these are the measures I'm immediately aware of. Hope it helps!
