For those of you who remember, my OH had that car accident and has now got 2 crushed discs in his back. Well they sent him for therapy yesterday, electric shock and accupuncture. He seemed fine, his back was feeling less sore all was good. Tonight however......he is having the worst cramps in his legs! All the way down to his feet. I am quite concerned cause he hasnt had cramp for ages and even then it wasnt this bad!!! Does anyone know whether its the treatment that is cause this or could it be something else?

Luckly he has some muscle relaxent tablets and he has taken them to help him through. But he doesnt want to take these really.....addictive! :eek6:

Any help would be greatly received thanks guys! Xxxx

hi harry, i know when my aunt had back problems she went for therapy, and the next day she said it felt like she'd been punched and kicked in the back, but the day after it was alot better and the origianal problem had eased

What kind of pains are in his legs? is it sciatic pain or actual cramps?

I also have a crushed disc in my back and get terrible sciatic pain. Occasionally I will get really bad cramps in my legs too although its rare and will come on for no reason at all. if he is having sciatic pain then its probably to do with the therapy so it should ease up in time.

Glad he is getting sorted though, horrible business crushed discs!!

Cant help you about the cramps but would have thought it would be the therapy.

If the disc was pressing on a nerve then it would be sharp shooting pain not cramps.

Tell Hubby he wont get addicted to the tabs just by taking them whilst he has the cramps....who knows if he takes them they may have gone by tomorrow.

Are the tabs for cramps though Hun.

As Pixi said bananas are really good if it is cramps. high potassium.

Hope he pain free soon

xx

Nope defintaly cramps! The tabs are muscle relaxants for his legs already....ermmm when he got burnt his legs have hurt since but thats aching pain, so dr gave him muscle relaxants to get him off the co codamol. long story about all his ailments, but because he hasnt had cramps for along time then all of a sudden got alot tonight after his treatment just made me wonder. Ty guys told him about the magnesium and potasium!
