What to know about leg cramps at night?

Leg cramps are uncontrolled spasms in the muscles of the leg that may be painful. They mostly occur in the calf muscles, though they may also appear in the thighs or feet. Much of the time, simple stretches may help ease the cramped muscles. There are also other treatments and prevention methods to try.

Nocturnal leg cramps may also lead to other issues. They can disrupt sleep and break up a person's sleep cycle, which can make them feel tired or lethargic the next day. Leg cramps may make it very difficult to fall asleep, and this could lead to issues such as insomnia over time.

Causes and risk factors

Tired muscles

Overexertion, such as exercising the muscles very intensely for a long time, may cause some people to experience more cramping later in the day. Standing for long periods during the day, which is common in many jobs, may fatigue muscles. The muscles tire during the day and may be more likely to cramp later during the night.

Body position

Sitting or lying in a certain way that restricts movement or blood flow to the legs, such as resting one leg on the other or with the legs crossed, may lead to cramps.

Older age

As people age, they may also be more likely to have leg cramps at night. As per the review, up to 33% of people over 50 years of age experience chronic nocturnal leg cramps.

Ayurvedic treatment for Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)

Ayurveda is an traditional Indian practice involving a natural, holistic method for treating medical conditions. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) treatment is done by Ayurveda. Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease which causes chronic inflammation of the joints. It causes inflammation of the tissue around the joints, as well as in other organs also. Autoimmune diseases cause illnesses that occur when the body's tissues are mistakenly attacked by their own immune system. Patients suffering from autoimmune diseases have antibodies in their blood that target their own body tissues, where they can be associated with inflammation. Because it can affect multiple other organs of the body, it is referred to as a systemic illness and is sometimes called rheumatoid disease.

Ayurvedic treatments for Rheumatoid Arthritis depend on which diagnostic guidelines the practitioner uses. Like those who practice from the guidelines "Madhava Nidana" believe that imbalances in the gut and inflammatory compounds cause RA and on the other hand, practitioners believe that RA is the result of poor dietary and reflects lifestyle habits which causes inflammation in the body. Both approaches use herbs, dietary changes, exercise, supplements, and to help relieve RA symptoms.
