    Scared

    Thank you so much for your response. I had two bananas 24 ounces of water and a big glass of milk and I still have the nighttime cramping. I'm so sorry to bother you all but I just read in so many areas where cramping and twitching were the initial symptoms of ALS. Thank you again and God bless
