I have muscle cramps in my calves and feet--usually when I'm in bed. I had them in my hands, also, but those haven't been bothering me lately. I think it might be because of a vitamin deficiancy but am not sure.

I get cramps in my feet and legs, pretty badly sometimes. I actually am planning to get into the doctor soon to have my vitamin levels tested. He could be deficient in a lot of things as the intestines weren't absorbing while they were damaged and may not heal for a while still.

I used to get really bad cramps all over but mostly in my legs. They were like charlie horses I guess. I would wake up in the night in excrutiating pain from stretching or moving while I slept. The pain would subside after a couple minutes but I would be temporarily paralyzed from pain. It doesnt happen that bad anymore but I do still get pain in my hands and fingers...sometimes I have carpul tunnel type symptoms but they come and go. I think its a deficiency of some kind. :unsure:

You don't say how old your son is, but low Calcium causes cramping in most people ... especially Celiacs as we don't absorb enough.

If your son is old enough to spend much time on a computer, video games, or text messaging, I would consider cutting back on those and start on squeezing a ball or something to change the way he is using the hand. Kids now are showing more and more pre-carple tunnel signs because of their computer and game playing.

If all else fails .. check with your doctor. :)

Elisabet,

I have also had problems with cramping and sore muscles. I have found that taking a magnesium supplement helps immensely. I have tested it by coming off the magnesium and the pain and cramps come back, then taking the supplement again and they go away!

Worth a try!

May I just ask what the "BEST" system is??

The magnesium and calcium work together for absorbsion.

I've had a lot of muscle cramping in the past and the thing that works best is drinking Smartwater by Glace, it has minerals added to it and can help with any muscle cramping that may be from dehydration. The company now makes fruit water with calories and flavor.

Danikali,

The BEST System - Bio Energetic Stress System - is quite incredible. It is based on a computer programme that 'reads' your organs and body processes. It is done through the pressure points on your hands and feet. It picks up imbalances in the body and is fantastic for picking up food allergies / intolerances.

I was quite sceptical when I went for the first time but I was blown away. With no input from me, the technician told me all illnesses I had had in my life from when I was about 6! She was the first person to mention gluten to me after being sick most of my life. I have since had blood tests and seen a specialist but this system picked it up after years of seeing doctors and surgeons.

She picked up a hormone imbalance, quite a few food intolerances apart from gluten, parasites and liver weakness.

It definitely works!

I just wanted to give an update on my son `s finger problems.We did a blood test,his b12 was low-normal.

We gave him some b12 for 8 weeks.and he is much better now.

He used to play flute 2 hours a day,but he couldn t play scince nov.

He felt that he wants to try it again yesterday,and he played for 30 min without any problem.

He played 30 minutes today as well .

He is not as good as before,but we do see improvements.

I must thank you every one here.those who answered me on this topic and those who answered me by PM.
