If you are getting cold at night you may want to either dress warmer or turn up the heat. There are several things that can cause muscle cramps that won't go away. A lack of magnesium, which gets more common as we age, potassium or calcium can do it. Drinking coffee, tea or sodas can wash those minerals out of the body. I take magnesium about every day to prevent cramps and have for about 2 years now. If you don't want to take a pill take a hot soaking bath for about 20-30 minutes with Epsom Salts which is just magnesium & sulfur. You can also take a long soak in a bath with Bath Therapy bath salts, they really help.

I found out Potassium has caused me these conditions. Always got them on eating Bananas and Avocados. I also heard magnesium works with the muscles and I have this supplement. I haven't taken any of my magnesium for a couple weeks. Perhaps I will take one and see what results I get? Going to take a hot bath soak. Do not have Epsom Salt though.

If the hot bath alone doesn't help then you probably need the minerals.
