Does anyone else get random leg cramps? My calf muscle in my left leg cramps up on me all the time. I have always just ignored it. Now I'm on birth control to control my periods (Spryntec) and the cramping has never been this bad other than when I was pregnant. I even missed work today because I was in so much pain.
Often, now that I'm on these pills and during my pregnancies, I wake up in the night with my toes pointed unable to flex my foot because my calf muscle is pulling so tight. Lately, the pain has been spreading up my leg and down to my toes. I just wonder if anyone else has had to deal with this. I don't see my doctor again for another month. Should I try to get in earlier?

I would call my physician. My friend had leg cramps after she was put on medication and she ended up with a blood clot. Not to scare you, but I would rather be safe than sorry. GL
