Night cramps and tremors

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Team - I'm eight weeks out from a Spinal SAH grade 1-2 . The usual intermittent headaches treated with panadol and sleep . But I've been left with 2 things I'd like to talk about . 1 is a settled tremor throughout my body (most obvious in my hands and 2 being waking up it my fingers in a cramped position my right large toe seems to be the same and was wondering if anyone else had suffered these symptoms and what course of treatment you used

Hi there welcome

 

if your anxious see your GP, I had tremors and they did ease only when I'm stressed now are they obvious.

I agree with Louise Boxa, if in doubt sort it out..  Stress is bad for us so we must relax.  When poss !!

 

I got a lot of cramps in my feet mainly, got looked at weirdly when stamped my foot when it got caught and toes crossed  arghhhh !!

 

I heard from someone Tonic water helped  with cramps,  so I got myself a 6 pack of small bottles, as I thought nothing ventured etc.  might have been mind over matter !!

 

Must admit I do not get them as much, could be my brain fooling me though as I put mine through a lot.

 

Good luck and keep recovering xx

I used to get a lot of unexplainable cramps and sensations and I resorted to just trying to adjust my diet to make sure I was bringing in a lot of extra minerals and vitamin rich food. I found not letting myself get hungry really helped and I actually had some food supplements for a while.

 

my doctor did blood tests as well which found I was a bit low in certain minerals so I took supplements but you should always consult a doctor before doing that.

 

i speculate that the brain uses so many of the nutrients it gets faster when it heals plus all it's levels are out of whack so for me that's what made sense and over time the termors disappeared.

Ask your Doc for a blood test to see if you're deficient in any vitamins or minerals .... it could be a simple fix. I was found to be lacking in iron, calcium/vit D post SAH. x

Thanks so much for the replies . I have a blood test due in a week and will make sure I get the one with the lot. Good luck with your healing each and every one of you !

I get a lot of leg cramps and my doc told me to try a magnesium supplement which helped me a great deal, doesn't mean it will help you as well. 

As for tremors, sometimes medications can cause these. My seizure meds do this to me sometimes. I would check with your GP.

God Bless,

Mandie
