    Does anyone else have thigh cramps? Or know what causes them? Is it normal?

    I have it too! Not at all times, just at night. I will wake up and my thighs will be aching pretty bad. It helps to move around and stretch the leg muscles often, so the blood flows better...I don't know what causes it other than the hormones loosening the joints etc, but that's what I do when I get the pain. Also drink loads of water :)

    Nope, only on my calves, feels like I've pulled a muscle when I wake up but eventually goes away. I imagine it's the same kind of thing going on.

    I'm having thigh cramps right now! Tried taking a hot bath and it helped a bit. The pain isn't completely gone,still better than before. I have had many episodes of calf cramps which were relieved only by massage
    Hope you get better :hugs:

    I've had some calf ones this time. I have heard that pure orange juice can help, but i don't really like the stuff so haven't tried.
