I had an EKG well several that showed possible left and right atrial enlargement since then I have had bouts?
I was on Metoprolol Tartrate but that started crashing my bp then he switched me to Verapamil and that increased my heart rate and crashed my bp now I'm on Nadolol Asked by Kenneth Mattias 1 year ago.

Unless you speak German electrocardiogram is abbreviated ECG. The ECG records only 10% of the electrical activity of the heart. This means that it has high specificity but low sensitivity. This means that if there is a positive finding it is likely a true positive and if the ECG is normal there is no reassurance. It is unusual for an ECG to suggest atrial abnormality (the correct terminology as the ECG cannot distinguish chamber enlargement - dilatation - from an increase in muscle mass - hypertrophy) but the atria to be of normal size on echocardiography. Nonetheless if the echocardiogram was normal then you do not have a problem with the atria. The body responds to a low blood pressure by increasing the heart rate. Both metoprolol tartrate and naldolol are beta blockers. It is dangerous to take beta blockers to blunt pulse when there is a problem with the blood pressure being low. Verapamil hydrochloride is a slow channel voltage dependent calcium entry blocker. It may blunt pulse but it also decreases blood pressure. Thus the use of all 3 of these medications seems problematic. I do not know why your physician would order a nuclear stress test. These are done when coronary artery disease is thought to be present. It sounds as if you have an electrophysiologic problem and that you should undergo EPS or an electrophysiologic study. In matters medical today the Latin aphorism should always be on your mind: cave medice - beware of doctor. I would encourage you to have a long discussion with your physician before submitting to one test after another. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR Answered by Mark Dirr 1 year ago.

The ultrasound of your heart will tell whether you have Atrial enlargement. Did you ask the Dr. if your heart was enlarged? The stress test will be used to rule out any blockages in your Coronary Arteries. The Ekgs are often in error & would have to be confirmed with the ultrasound. So if the Echo cardiogram was normal & the Stress Test turns out normal then the most severe problems will have been ruled out. Answered by Davina Dibrito 1 year ago.

The computer interpretation is frequently incorrect and is unreliable to determine enlargement. The echocardiogram is used to determine size. You have written that your echo showed nothing so there was no atrial enlargement.You have not documented the medications that you are taking for your fast heart rate. if you want you an email me your medications so I could answer your question further.

What causes leg cramps, during sleeping.?
Asked by Cinthia Nigg 1 year ago.

What are nocturnal leg cramps? These cramps are sudden, involuntary contractions of the calf muscles that occur during the night or while at rest. Occasionally, muscles in the soles of the feet also become cramped. The sensation can last a few seconds or up to 10 minutes, but the soreness may linger. The cramps can affect persons in any age-group, but they tend to occur in middle-aged and older populations. Nocturnal leg cramps should not be confused with restless legs syndrome, a crawling sensation that is relieved by walking or moving around. Although uncomfortable, restless legs syndrome typically does not involve cramping or pain. What are the causes? No one knows for sure what causes nocturnal leg cramps. In many cases, there doesn't seem to be any specific trigger. However, sometimes the cramps are caused by overexertion of the muscles, structural disorders (eg, flat feet), standing on concrete, prolonged sitting, inappropriate leg positions while sedentary, or dehydration. Less common causes include diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, anemia, thyroid and endocrine disorders, and use of some medications. What can I do to prevent these cramps? To stave off future episodes of nocturnal leg cramps, consider the following tips: Drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Doing so will help prevent dehydration, which may play a role in the cramping. Stretch calves regularly throughout the day and at night. (See box below for more information.) Ride a stationary bicycle for a few minutes before bedtime. This activity can help prevent cramps from developing during the night, especially if you do not get a lot of exercise during the day. Keep blankets loose at the foot of the bed to prevent your toes and feet from pointing downward while you sleep. Do aquatic exercises regularly during the week to help stretch and condition your muscles. Wear proper foot gear. How can I make them go away? When cramping occurs, try these steps: Walk on or jiggle the affected leg and then elevate it. Straighten the leg and flex your foot toward your knee. Grab your toes and pull them upward toward your knee. You should feel your calf muscles stretching. Take a hot shower or warm bath, or apply an ice massage to the cramped muscle. Persistent or severe leg cramps often are treated with medication. Quinine sulfate is considered the most effective drug, but it can have unpredictable adverse effects and should be used with caution. (In 1995, the US Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of all quinine-based over-the-counter preparations.) Alternative medications include diphenhydramine hydrochloride, vitamin E, simple muscle relaxants (such as meprobamate [Equanil, Miltown]), verapamil hydrochloride (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan), chloroquine phosphate (Aralen Phosphate), and hydroxychloroquine sulfate (Plaquenil Sulfate). --------------------------------------... Stretch your way to better sleep Nocturnal muscle cramps can often be prevented by doing leg-stretching exercises, such as the one outlined below. 1. Stand 30 inches from the wall. 2. While keeping your heels on the floor, lean forward, put your hands on the wall, and slowly move your hands up the wall as far as you can reach comfortably. 3. Hold the stretched position for 30 seconds. Release. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times. 5. For best results, practice this exercise in the morning, before your evening meal, and before going to bed each night. Answered by Melva Carratura 1 year ago.

Nocturnal leg cramps are sudden, involuntary contractions of the calf muscles that occur during the night or while at rest. The cramps can affect persons in any age-group, but they tend to occur in middle-aged and older populations. Research has not identified precisely what causes nighttime muscle cramps. The problem is most likely with the nerves controlling the muscles rather than with the muscles themselves. Some research points to a problem with the transition from wakefulness to sleep. Many individuals who have nocturnal leg cramps have them at the time of dreaming. That's why some researchers think that these cramps result from a subtle malfunction in the control system that normally separates our brain from the body movements we make in our dreams. However, most scientists believe that the problem is not a disorder within the brain. Sometimes the cramps are caused by overexertion of the muscles, structural disorders (flat feet), standing on concrete, prolonged sitting, inappropriate leg positions while sedentary, or dehydration. Doctors do know that those who are more muscular seem to have more leg cramps. Less common causes include diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, anemia, thyroid and endocrine disorders and use of some medications. Low levels of certain minerals known as electrolytes—magnesium, potassium, calcium and sodium—have long been linked to leg cramps. (Marathon runners sweating out the miles are particularly prone to this variety.) Certain drugs, such as diuretics have also been cited as a cause of leg cramps. Dialysis patients often complain of leg cramps, and pregnancy is also a factor. To prevent cramping consider the regular use of supplements, especially calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium (only if your sodium intake is low or if you sweat a lot). Stretching your calves regularly during the day and at night will help. You can often prevent night cramps by exhausting the stretch reflex before you go to bed by stretching your calf muscles with wall pushups and applying a heating pad for 10 minutes before going to bed. Keeping blankets loose at the foot of the bed will help prevent unnatural positioning of your feet and toes which can cause night time cramping. When cramping occurs, try walking on the affected leg and then elevate it. Stretch your calf by grabbing your toes and pulling them upward toward your knee, especially with you leg extended straight. Take a hot shower or warm bath, or apply an ice massage to the cramped muscle. Persistent or severe leg cramps often are treated with medication. Such medications include diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Benadryl), simple muscle relaxants such as meprobamate (Equanil, Miltown) and verapamil hydrochloride (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan). Quinine, while effective, has too many side effects and has been banned in the US for this use. Answered by Pearle Pela 1 year ago.

Everyone had left and no matter how hard I struggled, I could only end up squatting. It would have been even more embarressing if others had noticed but they have all ran ahead of me.

Constipation? Or something else.?
I've been in college now for 2 1/2 months. In that time I have only gone number two five times. I know how nasty this sounds, but what is wrong with me? If you know can you help me? Asked by Genia Meisenheimer 1 year ago.

Dear! I believe you are quite young and constipation is unusual in this age. Fortunately serious causes of constipation are also rare in your age. There are several common causes of constipation. For example if you have any painful lesion around your bowel outlet like anal fissure or piles, it may cause reflex inhibition of the desire to evacuate the bowel due to the resultant pain. Another factor may be your diet. People who take mostly bread made of white flour devoid of husk/ bran, lots of meat, fish and eggs and fats, and very little or no green leafy vegetables, salads and friuts, also suffer from constipation as their diet contains no residues to be excreted. You should increase these items in your diet. Drink plenty of water, at least six to eight additional glasses daily for full hydration of your bowels. There are many drugs that can cause constipation. Among them are most of the anti depressants, narcotic analgesics like Morphine, Pethidine, Propoxyphene hydrochloride (often combined with paracetamol as an over the counter drug for headaches and bodyaches, Codiene for the same purpose, Calciun Channel Blocking anti hypertensives like Nifedipine, Diltiazem and Amlodipine, Verapamil from the same group used in certain irregularities in the heart rhythm etc. Calcium supplements and Iron tablets/ capsules also are notorious in causing constipation and dryness of stool. Many antispasmodics used for abdominal pain syndromes and painful menstruation also cause constipation, slow the bowel movements and make the stool dry. Certain psychological problems, specially depression, also can cause constipation. Apart from pondering upon these points, see if you are losing weight, have ever passed blood in stool or have anaemia (low haemoglobin level in your blood) of unexplained origin. If yes, you should consult your physician as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and timely management. Answered by Mireille Coach 1 year ago.

It could be stress causing your problem. Try drinking more water and eating leafy veggies to help. You may also want to try a laxative at this point. Also, eating Dannon Activia yogurt will help naturally regulate your bowels. Answered by Ula Spacagna 1 year ago.

I was on Metoprolol Tartrate but that started crashing my bp then he switched me to Verapamil and that increased my heart rate and crashed my bp now I'm on Nadolol Asked by Shenna Mellon 1 year ago.

Unless you speak German electrocardiogram is abbreviated ECG. The ECG records only 10% of the electrical activity of the heart. This means that it has high specificity but low sensitivity. This means that if there is a positive finding it is likely a true positive and if the ECG is normal there is no reassurance. It is unusual for an ECG to suggest atrial abnormality (the correct terminology as the ECG cannot distinguish chamber enlargement - dilatation - from an increase in muscle mass - hypertrophy) but the atria to be of normal size on echocardiography. Nonetheless if the echocardiogram was normal then you do not have a problem with the atria. The body responds to a low blood pressure by increasing the heart rate. Both metoprolol tartrate and naldolol are beta blockers. It is dangerous to take beta blockers to blunt pulse when there is a problem with the blood pressure being low. Verapamil hydrochloride is a slow channel voltage dependent calcium entry blocker. It may blunt pulse but it also decreases blood pressure. Thus the use of all 3 of these medications seems problematic. I do not know why your physician would order a nuclear stress test. These are done when coronary artery disease is thought to be present. It sounds as if you have an electrophysiologic problem and that you should undergo EPS or an electrophysiologic study. In matters medical today the Latin aphorism should always be on your mind: cave medice - beware of doctor. I would encourage you to have a long discussion with your physician before submitting to one test after another. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR Answered by Siobhan Sempertegui 1 year ago.

The ultrasound of your heart will tell whether you have Atrial enlargement. Did you ask the Dr. if your heart was enlarged? The stress test will be used to rule out any blockages in your Coronary Arteries. The Ekgs are often in error & would have to be confirmed with the ultrasound. So if the Echo cardiogram was normal & the Stress Test turns out normal then the most severe problems will have been ruled out. Answered by Wanda Stremel 1 year ago.

What causes leg cramps, during sleeping.?
Asked by Karleen Heinsohn 1 year ago.

What are nocturnal leg cramps? These cramps are sudden, involuntary contractions of the calf muscles that occur during the night or while at rest. Occasionally, muscles in the soles of the feet also become cramped. The sensation can last a few seconds or up to 10 minutes, but the soreness may linger. The cramps can affect persons in any age-group, but they tend to occur in middle-aged and older populations. Nocturnal leg cramps should not be confused with restless legs syndrome, a crawling sensation that is relieved by walking or moving around. Although uncomfortable, restless legs syndrome typically does not involve cramping or pain. What are the causes? No one knows for sure what causes nocturnal leg cramps. In many cases, there doesn't seem to be any specific trigger. However, sometimes the cramps are caused by overexertion of the muscles, structural disorders (eg, flat feet), standing on concrete, prolonged sitting, inappropriate leg positions while sedentary, or dehydration. Less common causes include diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, anemia, thyroid and endocrine disorders, and use of some medications. What can I do to prevent these cramps? To stave off future episodes of nocturnal leg cramps, consider the following tips: Drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Doing so will help prevent dehydration, which may play a role in the cramping. Stretch calves regularly throughout the day and at night. (See box below for more information.) Ride a stationary bicycle for a few minutes before bedtime. This activity can help prevent cramps from developing during the night, especially if you do not get a lot of exercise during the day. Keep blankets loose at the foot of the bed to prevent your toes and feet from pointing downward while you sleep. Do aquatic exercises regularly during the week to help stretch and condition your muscles. Wear proper foot gear. How can I make them go away? When cramping occurs, try these steps: Walk on or jiggle the affected leg and then elevate it. Straighten the leg and flex your foot toward your knee. Grab your toes and pull them upward toward your knee. You should feel your calf muscles stretching. Take a hot shower or warm bath, or apply an ice massage to the cramped muscle. Persistent or severe leg cramps often are treated with medication. Quinine sulfate is considered the most effective drug, but it can have unpredictable adverse effects and should be used with caution. (In 1995, the US Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of all quinine-based over-the-counter preparations.) Alternative medications include diphenhydramine hydrochloride, vitamin E, simple muscle relaxants (such as meprobamate [Equanil, Miltown]), verapamil hydrochloride (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan), chloroquine phosphate (Aralen Phosphate), and hydroxychloroquine sulfate (Plaquenil Sulfate). --------------------------------------... Stretch your way to better sleep Nocturnal muscle cramps can often be prevented by doing leg-stretching exercises, such as the one outlined below. 1. Stand 30 inches from the wall. 2. While keeping your heels on the floor, lean forward, put your hands on the wall, and slowly move your hands up the wall as far as you can reach comfortably. 3. Hold the stretched position for 30 seconds. Release. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times. 5.

Nocturnal leg cramps are sudden, involuntary contractions of the calf muscles that occur during the night or while at rest. The cramps can affect persons in any age-group, but they tend to occur in middle-aged and older populations. Research has not identified precisely what causes nighttime muscle cramps. The problem is most likely with the nerves controlling the muscles rather than with the muscles themselves. Some research points to a problem with the transition from wakefulness to sleep. Many individuals who have nocturnal leg cramps have them at the time of dreaming. That's why some researchers think that these cramps result from a subtle malfunction in the control system that normally separates our brain from the body movements we make in our dreams. However, most scientists believe that the problem is not a disorder within the brain. Sometimes the cramps are caused by overexertion of the muscles, structural disorders (flat feet), standing on concrete, prolonged sitting, inappropriate leg positions while sedentary, or dehydration. Doctors do know that those who are more muscular seem to have more leg cramps. Less common causes include diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, anemia, thyroid and endocrine disorders and use of some medications. Low levels of certain minerals known as electrolytes—magnesium, potassium, calcium and sodium—have long been linked to leg cramps. (Marathon runners sweating out the miles are particularly prone to this variety.) Certain drugs, such as diuretics have also been cited as a cause of leg cramps. Dialysis patients often complain of leg cramps, and pregnancy is also a factor. To prevent cramping consider the regular use of supplements, especially calcium, magnesium, potassium and sodium (only if your sodium intake is low or if you sweat a lot). Stretching your calves regularly during the day and at night will help. You can often prevent night cramps by exhausting the stretch reflex before you go to bed by stretching your calf muscles with wall pushups and applying a heating pad for 10 minutes before going to bed. Keeping blankets loose at the foot of the bed will help prevent unnatural positioning of your feet and toes which can cause night time cramping. When cramping occurs, try walking on the affected leg and then elevate it. Stretch your calf by grabbing your toes and pulling them upward toward your knee, especially with you leg extended straight. Take a hot shower or warm bath, or apply an ice massage to the cramped muscle. Persistent or severe leg cramps often are treated with medication. Such medications include diphenhydramine hydrochloride (Benadryl), simple muscle relaxants such as meprobamate (Equanil, Miltown) and verapamil hydrochloride (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan). Quinine, while effective, has too many side effects and has been banned in the US for this use. Answered by Cheryll Ainsworth 1 year ago.

Leg Falling Asleep While Sleeping Answered by Magaret Wartchow 1 year ago.

Constipation? Or something else.?
I've been in college now for 2 1/2 months. In that time I have only gone number two five times. I know how nasty this sounds, but what is wrong with me? If you know can you help me? Asked by Annabell Smutnick 1 year ago.

Dear! I believe you are quite young and constipation is unusual in this age. Fortunately serious causes of constipation are also rare in your age. There are several common causes of constipation. For example if you have any painful lesion around your bowel outlet like anal fissure or piles, it may cause reflex inhibition of the desire to evacuate the bowel due to the resultant pain. Another factor may be your diet. People who take mostly bread made of white flour devoid of husk/ bran, lots of meat, fish and eggs and fats, and very little or no green leafy vegetables, salads and friuts, also suffer from constipation as their diet contains no residues to be excreted. You should increase these items in your diet. Drink plenty of water, at least six to eight additional glasses daily for full hydration of your bowels. There are many drugs that can cause constipation. Among them are most of the anti depressants, narcotic analgesics like Morphine, Pethidine, Propoxyphene hydrochloride (often combined with paracetamol as an over the counter drug for headaches and bodyaches, Codiene for the same purpose, Calciun Channel Blocking anti hypertensives like Nifedipine, Diltiazem and Amlodipine, Verapamil from the same group used in certain irregularities in the heart rhythm etc. Calcium supplements and Iron tablets/ capsules also are notorious in causing constipation and dryness of stool. Many antispasmodics used for abdominal pain syndromes and painful menstruation also cause constipation, slow the bowel movements and make the stool dry. Certain psychological problems, specially depression, also can cause constipation. Apart from pondering upon these points, see if you are losing weight, have ever passed blood in stool or have anaemia (low haemoglobin level in your blood) of unexplained origin. If yes, you should consult your physician as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and timely management. Answered by Sheilah Stott 1 year ago.

It could be stress causing your problem. Try drinking more water and eating leafy veggies to help. You may also want to try a laxative at this point. Also, eating Dannon Activia yogurt will help naturally regulate your bowels. Answered by Shari Parmann 1 year ago.

yeah there are some drugs like INDOMETHACIN ,anti -convulsant drugs and ethosuximide that cause lymphnode enlargement!! they even cause a condition Pseudolymphoma" refers to a group of non-cancerous lymphocytic disorders of the skin that simulate malignant lymphomas. However, unlike lymphomas, patients who have a pseudolymphoma usually undergo spontaneous remission and will not die of the disease. The term "pseudo" means "not real", and "lymphoma" means "a cancerous tumor of lymphocytes". The causes of pseudolymphoma are broad and are classified based on their clinical features: drug induced causes : a. anticonvulsants b. antipsychotics: chlorpromazine, thioridazine c. antihypertensives: captopril, atenolol, verapamil, diltiazem, moduretic, hydrochlorothiazide d. cytotoxics: cyclosporine, methotrexate e. antirheumatics: gold, salicylates, phenacetin, D-penicillamine, allopurinol f. antibiotics: penicillin, nitrofurantoin g. antidepressants: fluoxetine, doxepin, desipramine, amitriptyline hydrochloride, lithium h. anxiolytics: alprazolam, clonazepam, lorazepam i. antihistamines: diphenhydramine, cimetidine, ranitidine j. antiarrhythmics: mexiletine chloride Answered by Charise Keeler 1 year ago.

I had an EKG well several that showed possible left and right atrial enlargement since then I have had bouts?
I was on Metoprolol Tartrate but that started crashing my bp then he switched me to Verapamil and that increased my heart rate and crashed my bp now I'm on Nadolol Asked by Evelin Sivyer 1 year ago.

Unless you speak German electrocardiogram is abbreviated ECG. The ECG records only 10% of the electrical activity of the heart. This means that it has high specificity but low sensitivity. This means that if there is a positive finding it is likely a true positive and if the ECG is normal there is no reassurance. It is unusual for an ECG to suggest atrial abnormality (the correct terminology as the ECG cannot distinguish chamber enlargement - dilatation - from an increase in muscle mass - hypertrophy) but the atria to be of normal size on echocardiography. Nonetheless if the echocardiogram was normal then you do not have a problem with the atria. The body responds to a low blood pressure by increasing the heart rate. Both metoprolol tartrate and naldolol are beta blockers. It is dangerous to take beta blockers to blunt pulse when there is a problem with the blood pressure being low. Verapamil hydrochloride is a slow channel voltage dependent calcium entry blocker. It may blunt pulse but it also decreases blood pressure. Thus the use of all 3 of these medications seems problematic. I do not know why your physician would order a nuclear stress test. These are done when coronary artery disease is thought to be present. It sounds as if you have an electrophysiologic problem and that you should undergo EPS or an electrophysiologic study. In matters medical today the Latin aphorism should always be on your mind: cave medice - beware of doctor. I would encourage you to have a long discussion with your physician before submitting to one test after another. I wish you the very best of health and happiness and in all things may God bless. JR Answered by Eulah Dyl 1 year ago.

The ultrasound of your heart will tell whether you have Atrial enlargement. Did you ask the Dr. if your heart was enlarged? The stress test will be used to rule out any blockages in your Coronary Arteries. The Ekgs are often in error & would have to be confirmed with the ultrasound. So if the Echo cardiogram was normal & the Stress Test turns out normal then the most severe problems will have been ruled out. Answered by Del Yaroch 1 year ago.

The computer interpretation is frequently incorrect and is unreliable to determine enlargement. The echocardiogram is used to determine size. You have written that your echo showed nothing so there was no atrial enlargement.You have not documented the medications that you are taking for your fast heart rate. if you want you an email me your medications so I could answer your question further.

What causes leg cramps, during sleeping.?
Asked by Providencia Nejman 1 year ago.

What are nocturnal leg cramps? These cramps are sudden, involuntary contractions of the calf muscles that occur during the night or while at rest. Occasionally, muscles in the soles of the feet also become cramped. The sensation can last a few seconds or up to 10 minutes, but the soreness may linger. The cramps can affect persons in any age-group, but they tend to occur in middle-aged and older populations. Nocturnal leg cramps should not be confused with restless legs syndrome, a crawling sensation that is relieved by walking or moving around. Although uncomfortable, restless legs syndrome typically does not involve cramping or pain. What are the causes? No one knows for sure what causes nocturnal leg cramps. In many cases, there doesn't seem to be any specific trigger. However, sometimes the cramps are caused by overexertion of the muscles, structural disorders (eg, flat feet), standing on concrete, prolonged sitting, inappropriate leg positions while sedentary, or dehydration. Less common causes include diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, anemia, thyroid and endocrine disorders, and use of some medications. What can I do to prevent these cramps? To stave off future episodes of nocturnal leg cramps, consider the following tips: Drink six to eight glasses of water daily. Doing so will help prevent dehydration, which may play a role in the cramping. Stretch calves regularly throughout the day and at night. (See box below for more information.) Ride a stationary bicycle for a few minutes before bedtime. This activity can help prevent cramps from developing during the night, especially if you do not get a lot of exercise during the day. Keep blankets loose at the foot of the bed to prevent your toes and feet from pointing downward while you sleep. Do aquatic exercises regularly during the week to help stretch and condition your muscles. Wear proper foot gear. How can I make them go away? When cramping occurs, try these steps: Walk on or jiggle the affected leg and then elevate it. Straighten the leg and flex your foot toward your knee. Grab your toes and pull them upward toward your knee. You should feel your calf muscles stretching. Take a hot shower or warm bath, or apply an ice massage to the cramped muscle. Persistent or severe leg cramps often are treated with medication. Quinine sulfate is considered the most effective drug, but it can have unpredictable adverse effects and should be used with caution. (In 1995, the US Food and Drug Administration banned the sale of all quinine-based over-the-counter preparations.) Alternative medications include diphenhydramine hydrochloride, vitamin E, simple muscle relaxants (such as meprobamate [Equanil, Miltown]), verapamil hydrochloride (Calan, Isoptin, Verelan), chloroquine phosphate (Aralen Phosphate), and hydroxychloroquine sulfate (Plaquenil Sulfate). --------------------------------------... Stretch your way to better sleep Nocturnal muscle cramps can often be prevented by doing leg-stretching exercises, such as the one outlined below. 1. Stand 30 inches from the wall. 2. While keeping your heels on the floor, lean forward, put your hands on the wall, and slowly move your hands up the wall as far as you can reach comfortably. 3. Hold the stretched position for 30 seconds. Release. 4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 two more times. 5. For best results, practice this exercise in the morning, before your evening meal, and before going to bed each night. Answered by Henriette Gelo 1 year ago.
