I'm getting cramps in back of shins if I stretch my feet or legs mostly at night that's when the muscle goes into spasm..
Very uncomfortable lol. I also have Hodgkin's lymphoma..
Me to it’s horrible I try eating skinny chips with salt daughter suggested may be due to I do not use salt much ?
This is a bit of folk medicine, I suspect, but I've been told a bit of extra magnesium helps. Not sure what foods are rich in it (green veg, nuts, etc), but you can certainly get supplements in supermarkets. I try a bit when I remember, but I know how grim it can be when the cramps just won't let you rest. Table salt may or may not have traces of magnesium.
Your daughter sounds amazing! What a lovely break to have together!
