 Muscle cramps and spasms
Michael.B    2:01am Aug 31 2019

Iíve learned during the last few months of my injuries and subsequent confinement in a series of casts that there are many down sides to this ordeal: not being able to weight bear, bathe or shower properly, sleeping is disturbed always, being stared it when Iím outside of the house, itching, not being able to bend my bloody knee!! I could go on. And on.
However, I think the worst part is when my muscles inside the cast decide to involuntarily cramp and spasm. I take quinine supplements help but sometimes my leg goes either into spasm or cramp and itís absolutely awful feeling - my leg presses against the sides of the cast and it hurts until it stops.
This morning Iíve had one such episode in my calf (the usual suspect) and it went down into my foot and toes and I wish I had a saw like the ones they use to cut the cast off in the plaster room and just massage my poor leg - but I donít so you just have to wait until it ends of its own accord.
Really awful 🥺😩

23rd April ruptured achilles left leg. Temporary plaster splint (full leg equinus)
