Hi Anniesue, 

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..

Hiya Purrwoman,

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!
