I have severe charlie horse in my feet and legs. I have beed to several doctors, blood tests were rean and I continue to expoerience this pain three times during slee, it is so bad it awakens me. I have not slep throught the night in a year due to this cramping. My toes turn under and I have to use my hands to straighten them out. My doctor told me to take CoQ10 and low dose magnesuim. I drink almost two gallons of water per day and tonic water does not help either. What can I do?

Welcome to healhcaremagic
After going through your query I concluded that you have vitamin and trace elements deficiencies. You should get your vitamin D and calcium checked to know there deficiencies. I empirically give my such patients EVIONLC, Mecobalamin, Vitamin D3 and calcium. Analgesic such as ibuprofen is given for pain relief. You can discuss with your Doctor about it. Hope your query get answered. If you have any clarification then please don't hesitate to write to us. I will be happy to help you.
Wishing you a good health. Take care.
