2. Muscle Cramps and Spasms
Cramping and spasming of the muscles can be uncomfortable and very painful. These cramps and spasms are unpredictable and uncontrollable and unfortunately they are not a symptom that you can easily ignore and move on with your day. People who work out or athletes often will experience cramps due to not stretching or over exertion. However, there are many people who suffer from this ailment without a reasonable explanation.
When a muscle cramp or spasm occurs, it can be a sign that you are lacking important nutrients in your body. Not getting enough magnesium in your diet muscle cramping is common. Raising your intake of magnesium may help to ease these symptoms. Short term relief may be provided by massaging and stretching the muscles that have been affected. Vitamins E and D are important for muscle strength as well. Make sure that you get your daily dose of each of these to ward off cramping.
