My pain is so excrutiating ... BOTH inner thighs in the middle of the night ... I jump out of bed. My doctor recommended magnesium and it works WONDERS! I would try taking a couple of magnesium vitamin pills before going to bed. I also take a potassium vitamin plus eat bananas. When I do this on a regular basis, I don't have the cramps. But if I neglect this for a few weeks, my magnesium and potassium reserves run low and they start again.
I also have something called cramps911 (I am now using the CVS generic) which is a homeopathic pill which helps subside the cramping within a few minutes, otherwise they can last over 15-20 minutes. It is easier to just make sure I am getting enough magnesium and potassium since I drink a lot of water and can dilute my reserves.

Margypops sorry for the delayed response, if you take it at night you won't feel nauseated that seems to help. I am not sure so perhaps you can advise I thought Magnesium was fat soluble and not water soluble --- would be interested to see if this helps you breath in the long run keep us posted
