After losing weight and feeling like hit the “reset button” with the detox, I am pumped to enroll in this 60 Day program! First, I have to tell this story.  Before I was diagnosed with liver disease, I was hosting a foreign exchange student from Italy when a leg cramp hit. About an hour in, I threw my leg up on the coffee table and begged her to pull my toes toward my face. Before you judge me, if you have never had severe leg cramps you have NO idea what I am talking about. After being diagnosed with Hepatitis C and cirrhosis, I came to a better understanding of the connection. During Hepatitis C Treatment with Incivik, Ribavirin, and Interferon the cramps multiplied. Any attempt to stand and walk it off left me on the floor yelling, “Grab my toes!” With one bad cramp, my daughter, who is 5’2” decided she was going to untwist that leg.
Dehydration – If you do not give your muscles enough water, they will tighten and cramp up.
Bar of Soap – I put this so that if it doesn’t make your leg cramps go away, you can use it to wash your mouth out if you cuss your way through them. Stretching – I honestly feel that beginning and ending my day with a few stretches has helped as much as anything for slight leg cramps. Quinine – My transplant doctor said that tonic water with quinine was fine for use during treatment.
I am here for you when your legs cramp up or whatever else you find yourself suffering from while dealing with Hepatitis C or cirrhosis.
I also have hand cramps recently – My Youtube video about Hand Yoga shows you how to do the exercise that brings relief.

She's a busy mom of 3 who knows that turning into a "hot moody mess " can happen in the blink of an eye. Not only are they ultra humiliating, there is nothing in the whole world you can do about it. This blog is for those who have endured severe, long lasting legs and feet cramping in pain.
I did more internet research and put a bar of soap under the bottom sheet at the foot of my bed. I read on the internet that if you put a bar of soap under the sheet at the foot of the bed it would help. Dark chocolate, bran, almonds, seeds, and dried culinary herbs all contain a lot of magnesium. Notice that it is NOT like the Magesium Flakes and other products that have Sodium Chloride in them.

They seem to strike when you are deep in REM sleep leaving you in the most vulnerable position ever. At one point, internet advice had me keeping a bag of tortilla chips beside my bed along with a large bottle of water.
We were doing her favorite thing on a Friday night – sitting in the living room watching a movie. My brainiac friend confirmed this to me by talking about reducing static electricity and thereby… blah blah blah. For the last 6 weeks I have drank 16 oz of coconut water immediately after my run and have not had a leg cramp during that time.


The leg cramps (and muscle cramps in general) can wake me up! I’ve been using a magnesium drink every night. Hurry!”  That poor girl was so upset and confused that she was in no mood for a movie after that. The leg cramps that can come on when your body is out of whack is like a level 10 contraction that does NOT end.
My leg cramps are less frequent, less severe, and shorter in duration when I use the mineral supplement. It is the longest I have gone without a leg cramp in several years. Of course I am also drinking more water when I run also, but read my post on coconut oil here.
You can get it at your health food store and a bottle lasts 4 or 5 months if you use 1 tsp.
While the story is usually funny the next day, it is never ever funny while it is happening. Calm and focused breathing with a contracting uterus is no match for a twisted up muscle in your leg. I was on high doses of diuretics like Lasix and Spironolactone and was told that they may contribute to the fluid and mineral imbalance that included ascites.
If you have End Stage Liver Disease or cirrhosis, or Hepatitis C you know that when your body becomes imbalanced or your muscles are overexerted, the leg cramps are pure craziness. I have tried everything in the book and, you guessed it – You’re going to hear about all the causes and cures for leg cramps that work and some that don’t. This was one of those middle of the night internet reading binges that created fear and anxiety.
