How can leg cramps be treated?

I have been having a lot of leg cramps. Mostly in my thighs and feet. I have been on Cymbalta for about 2 years for nerve pain from a abrasion on my left inside ankle due to cirrculation problems. I have had vein strippedin my right leg and a vein cauterized in my left leg. Tried bananas and drinking more water. Not working. Do wear a compression sock on left leg.

It is due to dehydration.

As of now, drink plenty of water and take bed rest.

Generally, the symptoms will settle in a couple of days.

If symptoms persist better to consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
