I assume it's all part of getting old. I asked my Doc last time I saw him and he said there was nothing he could do about it... Thanks!

Eat banana and drink some water. I know people who are diabetic, suffer from this due to dehydration. (my mum who is diabetic does and it is really painful)

Your Doctor needs a slap

Is Restless Leg Syndrome the same thing? My elderly dad suffers from this...

Pubs full of Sutton Chels turning off the excellent play off semi to watch the build up of the cup final even though they haven't turned the sound up yet

yep, here too. Left calf. Middle of the night. Very annoying.

Recently I have been eating bananas (as advised by DrRazor) - one every 2 days. It seems to work. Apparently one possible cause is lack of zinc and/or magnesium, both of which are found in bananas.

Yes, I am decrepit :D

Yep, the ones in the shin have to be the worst.

I should add that there maybe a correlation between my leg cramps at night and an over abundance of alcohol intake before bed.

All part of my pre-diabetis I've read.

And yes, bananas help, they just don't go too well with red wine!

No, that is more than a cramp. Bless him. Someone at my previous work has it, which did make me look it up when she mentioned as I had never heard about it till then.

Is restless leg syndrome the same as these people who when sitting have a foot constantly tapping/shaking?

Drives me nuts... sat next to someone on a plane doing it for 11 hours one time. I always think it's some kind of show of nerves. They have to know they are doing it.

Liverpool supporting women who pretend to give an arse, when watching the footy on TV in a bar with their husband's, go oooh and aaah, any time the ball goes 50 feet over the crossbar...

Yes, not pleasant. He's 88 with poor circulation and on oxygen quite a bit of the time. But he hangs in there!

I think so, I think it is the urge to move the leg. That would have been very painful for that person. I can only sympathise.

Bless him and I donít think there is a cure other than rest up which is not much help

Banana fritters to go with the wine?

So dull, watching but dont gives a shit who wins. Palace there would make it special.

One day its gonna be us lifting that cup

mrB 14-05-2022 07:12 PM

Commentators calling Alexander-arnold 'Trent' (as if they know him). Same game they dont call Loftus-Cheek Ruben so its not the length of name that's the reason.
