Hello all. Since he was a little kid, my teenage son has experienced leg cramps several times a month. Similar to a Charley Horse, they last for hours and really only stop when wrapped in an ACE bandage or when he takes medicine (ibeuprofin or acetamenophin). They seem to happen more frequently after exercise, but he always stretches and they still come. He drinks a lot of water as well and exercises almost every day for about an hour. Sometimes they are more frequent, happening several times a week, but others times one won't happen for two or three weeks (usually once or twice a week at the minimum). What could this be? I originally thought just growing pains, but this has been happening for years. (He is almost fifteen and five foot one). I've heard it could also be Deep Vein Thombrosis, but I want to see if anybody else can help me out. Thanks and have a great day!
