I walk my two dogs about 4 times a day usually at leas 1/2 mile each time. I didn't notice any difference between when I started and when the leg cramps started. However, I've always taken a potassium supplement. I was taking 2 a day NOW I take 4 a day. two in the morning and two at night. Taking 4 seems to have helped a LOT and the leg cramps have for the most part stopped. Just a few times a week, I get the start of a cramp - the worst are in my upper inner thigh and are so bad that I couldn't walk! This is one of the most painful parts of PXE. My eye bleed in July 2016 was scary, the three gastric bleeds in the summer of 2015 were terrifying - but these horrific cramps are painful.
Hope the study helps find what is best to stop them. Thanks
