What to do, bad leg cramps?
A girl I know asked me to ask you this guys. Alright so she is, I believe 12 and has some pretty bad leg cramps. She told me they started somewhere around April or March. They are around the calf, shin, knee and thigh. Sometimes they hurt so bad she can barely walk. Or they start hurting when she runs. Sometimes they just hurt enough for her to limp and other times she can walk fine with them. But today I was hanging out with her and she was complaining about how horrible they were. I could tell she was hurt because she was limping the whole day. She could barely even walk across the street. Around April, she would wear a knee brace so maybe the pressure would hold things together. It would work for some hours but then they would start.She would put ice on them and it would work for some mins and then they would start.For a couple of weeks she would take Vitamin C throughout the day, Ibuprofen throughout the day, and Glucosamine Chondroitin. But it just never helped. Does she possibly need surgery, what to do? Sorry I am so unsure!
