Night splines and cramps?

Posted by Buck T. on 12/03/03 at 10:21 (139257)

I wear a night splint for periods with no problems. But then it seems to cause my foot to cramp when I wake and even make the pf worse. I
just stop wearing it even though I'm told to. Anyone have advice on this?

I was told to try night splints but I'm glad I didn't go that route. I get leg cramps for other reasons... and taking calcium seems to help prevent them.
