No chance of being pregnant!!

your not pregnant are you??

if you are a girl beacause of your period

All of the vitamins in bananas are VERY good for cramps! Takes them away fast!

you need some minerals..don't know which though..magnesium i think

Do you drink a lot of soda pop? It sounds like you have a deficiency of Potassium. That's the number one cause of cramps.

eat bananas to stop cramps

See your health care provider as soon as possible. A cramp is a sudden, brief, usually painful contraction of a muscle or group of muscles. Drinking plenty of fluids (particularly beverages that contain potassium) after exercise also helps to prevent cramps.

Most of the drugs prescribed to relieve cramps (including quine sulfate, magnesium carbonate, and benzodiazepines such as diazepam) have not proven to be effective and can cause side effects. Calcium supplements are well tolerated, but they also have not proven to be effective. Mexiletine some times helps but has many side effects.

If the cause isn't muscle fatigue, your physician may find other, possibly treatable causes. These can include circulatory problems, hyperventilation, an underactive thyroid, and low blood levels of calcium or (rarely) magnesium. And good luck.

because when your body doesn't aniticipate you doing sudden work (when you aren't using your muschles) and then you do it cramps up. and yes i heard bananas help because the have potasium.

Maybe you tweaked something? Take a nice hot bath and relax. Try taking in some potassium like a banana.

Muscle cramps are caused by fatigue and not by dehydration or loss of electrolytes. If those were the reason for cramps and when it is the reason then the cramps are all over the body not in just one or two muscles. There are two sets of reflexes that control what happens to muscles and when one is on the other is off. So simply put what you are doing somewhere in the course of your day is fatiguing those muscles enough that they are reacting this way. The way to relieve them is to stretch them out or have someone massage them with the first being the more effective. The type of footwear might be causing the feet to over work thereby causing the problem.

Because you are gaining massive weight,
