default
Posted on Mon, 11 May 2015
Question: Almost every night I get leg pain and cramping by morning. I am on a CPAP and it performs much better when I sleep on my side. Now the sides of my hips hurt during the night, depending on how long I sleep on one side plus I get the lower leg aches. Any ideas?
