I wake up with severe leg cramps, or "Charlie horses," in both feet and legs. Nothing gets rid of the pain. Sometimes my arms and hands cramp in a weird position and I have to pul them back to normal. What could be causing this?
This question doesn't mention anything about incontinence - is it categorized incorrectly, or are you also experiencing some kind of leakage? The best place to ask this question is probably over in our Chronic Pain community, where they deal with people having troubles such as this. It could be something as simple as a potassium deficiency that's causing the cramps, but people over there would have a better idea of how to help you.
