Wife has been on Keto / low carb for about 1.5 years.
In her pre keto life she had some leg / calf cramps but not this bad. Her mother also has some cramps.
She’s up most of the night. Foot, calf, leg cramps are apparently excruciating and causing massive sleep disruption. She went to the general physician yesterday who had zero advice. Some docs are truly space cadets.
She has tried: keto aid; potassium pills, magnesium pills (slow mag, mg oxide), electrolyte supplements, salting the hell out of food with sea salt and pink salt. Nothing seems to work.
She exercises daily and is rather slim. She’s doing this for the keep the sugar low cancer connection.
My thoughts at this time are to get off keto and see if that helps. Or do a calculated carb increase to see if water retention can come back a bit to help with electrolytes.
Or maybe its not even keto related? Anyone have any ideas or heard anything like this?
