Dear Dr. Motola:
I am 62 years old. In August of 2007 I had PVP surgery after suffering for 9 years with symtoms of an enlarged prostate . The operation was successful. My stream is strong and I get up only once at night to urinate. I got my life back. I don't have "urgency" issues and kayak, travel and basically enjoy life.

However, in the past few years, my night leg cramps have seemed to come around less often and they’re less severe. So what are these muscle cramps? How can you limit them? And what do you do if you have a leg cramp? “A muscle cramp is a sudden, uncontrolled contraction of a muscle,” wrote Dr. Jonathan Cluett on About.com. “Leg cramps occur when the muscle suddenly and forcefully contra...
