severe charley horse type cramps

Posted by Jane on 5/17/98 at 15:40 (000157)

As my PF gets worse with every passing month, so does my cramping. They are so severe that I actually get nauseous when it happens. Does anyone else suffer this symptom and if so what do you do to help?

I have had severe PF for 1 year now. I have tried ultrasound, PT, cortisone injections, taping, stretching, electric stimuli therapy, deep tissue massage, heel cups, better shoes and being in a cast for 4 1/2 months. I haven't tried Glucosomine though. I keep hearing about it so I need to do some research. I'm glad I wasn't going crazy because I hadn't heard anyone else talk about the severe cramping. Good luck.
