Does anyone know how to stop muscle seizures?

I get terribly painful muscle seizures mainly in my thighs. It will wake me at night and they last for around 8 to 12 minutes. Touching the area makes it much worse. I am completely incapacitated and it hurts so much I can't hardly breathe and I hyperventilate. I went to the ER and they couldn't find anything wrong with me. I'm sure it has to do with dehydration, but I need to know how to stop the seizure somehow instead of waiting in agony for it to release.

Try magnesium. Calcium contracts and magnesium relaxes the muscles. Magnesium levels are lowest at night. Look for "ate" for types of magnesium. Eg: citrate, glycinate, taurate, chelate. Magnesium oxide is cheap and poorly absorbed.

Thanks, I've been taking potassium and I am drinking fluids. What I'm looking for is something I can do to make the seizure stop once it starts.  Rubbing, touching, standing make it worse. I'm just stuck till it ends. I feel close to passing out sometimes.
