LEG CRAMPS IN CHILDREN
My 3 year old grandson complains of leg cramps approximately once a month.  The doctor says he can't find anything wrong and says its growing pains.  Im starting to think this is something genetic because his father (my son) also had these leg cramps when he was younger and his doc told me the same thing.  Now i find out i had them as did one of my sisters.  my sons 6 yr old daughter has also had them since she was about 2. and now my 3 yr old grandson as well???  In everyone these cramps  come and go mostly at night.  Warm cloths warm baths heating pads and absorbine jr seem to help till they go away.  No injuries in anyone everyone checks out ok at the doc and no sports or anything to really cause these cramps. everyone is pretty healthy otherwise.  They do seem to be less frequent after about 12 yrs old but even i still get them every once in a while. any suggestions or ideas will be appreciated..

sometimes when you are dehydrated you can get leg cramps, as well as not having enough potassium. there are many conditions associated with leg cramps, so try at home type treatment first and see what might work.
