Extremly bad cramps!

First off I AM GOING TO SEE THE DOCTOR ABOUT HIS... I just want yall input cause I can't see him for a few days. But here it is, for oh man like past id say 5 months or so I've gotten really bad cramps, im a guy, I've gotten bad gut cramps on the front of my stomach, calf ones, foot and that's really the only areas. And I mean they are bad!!! I can handle pain really well and I freak out when I get them cause they hurt that bad, the last one was a full calf cramp... it was the worst! I had to bite my pillow, being I woke up early in the morning with it, and I had to bite my finger too and these will go on for a few minutes. I do eat bananas a good amount so I doubt its low potassium. And after that calf crap, I had some serious leg pain 3 days after. It was painful to touch too, im kinda worried about this. No one else in the family has this problem. What could it be or what?

Cramps? Take some Midol and lay down for the rest of the night. :)

You are dehydrated. And need salt. Drink water and eat dill pickles.

Eating bananas could actually have an adverse reaction because the buildup of potassium can be bad for you.

You are most likely deficient in magnesium. Take a supplement and you should be fine.

But run it by your Dr.

Hmmm I only get cramps when....well you know or if I run for s long time(I am nit a runner give me a bike and I can go miles walking too but running....just not for some people) guess I'm not much help but I do get headaches epwhen I'm dehydrated maybe ramps are another symptom? I know you said you drink lots of water but your idea of lots could be different then what you actually need, everyon is different so find an amount that works for you.

But go see a doctor ASAP random cramps aren't normal.

Drink tonic water, a standard remedy in the UK, the quinine is good for the cramps

I am Not expert but When I get leg cramps I just put heat on it and it helps ease the pain at least a little :/ I hope you feel better soon and find out what this is!!
