All my life I've experienced leg and arm cramps. As a child I would have nights crying as my mom rubbed my legs. The best way I can describe the pain is that it feels just like a tension headache but the pain is not in my head, its taking over much larger areas..my arms and legs. My theory Is it has something to do with wind hitting my bones... I.e fans, drafts..only thing that helps is heat I.e heating pads or a hot bath. I'm in my 20s now and have yet to grow out of it. This past year I've had leg and arms cramps EVERY NIGHT ! It keeps me awake! Pain meds and leg cramps meds don't help! What is causing this and how can I put an end to it?
I spent my childhood with my Dad rubbing ben gay on my legs at night. My parents took me to many drs. They all had their own opinions but most ended up with "growing pains". Years later I was diagnosed with fibromylagia. The same pain I'd had all my life. I'd see a rheumatologist if I were you.
