  • The only thing you can make sure to limit the amount of them is to stretch before bed and through out the day and to get some type of excersise atleast 3 days a week. Other then that you will get them, I know their a pain and unfortuently there's no cure for them. good luck to you~!

  • It's normal. The only thing I was told is that when it happens don't rub it out, stretch it out to prevent any possibly blood clots from forming and moving into the veins. I know it sucks!

  • Very normal! Instead of banana, eat kiwi; much more potassium, lots of vitamin C and tons of fiber

    Make srue that you are drinking enough water
