I am no longer bothered by leg cramps at night – I found the cure!
Before I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, I had a SERIOUS CASE of plantar fasciitis that really crippled me. I found these boots worn at night that keep your feet in dorsiflexion (toes toward head) on the internet. From the first night, they helped and my plantar fasciitis resolved in about 3 months time. I stored the boots away in the closet wondering if I should get rid of them.
Well, my leg cramps from my myeloma treatments are a thousand times worse than plantar fasciitis EVER WAS. When they occur, mostly at night while I am in bed, the only cure is to bring your toes toward your head, best accomplished by getting up and walking around – YELPING LOUDLY.
