Can anyone tell me what the cramping is like with ALS? And also, when does it usually occur? After weakness, atrophy? Thanks!

Have you ever had what is commonly refered to as a "charlie horse"? That's what it is like and it can happen at any time and anywhere. I get them in my legs, arms, hands, fingers, neck, face, chest, etc.......like I said - anywhere. More frequent when tired or cold. They started before weakness and atrophy and are still happening 4 years later.....

HI,

I drink 3/4 of a liter a day of tonic water and wear socks at night and I don't get the cramps. I don't drink it and I get cramps if I move my foot at night. It has quinnine. Try it. I still get them periodically through the day, but not much and they don't wake me up:-D Best Wishes, Peg
