Hi sherry and welcome :welcome:

I moved your post so that you would have a thread of your own and hopefully get more response :)

Sorry you are having these problems but I'm glad you are able to see the Rheumy today, hopefully he will be able to shed some light on it and get you some relief :hug:

If your kidneys are playing up it can cause all sorts of hiccups as it throws a lot of things out of balance. That could be one possible cause. Let us know how you get along,

take care.

Hi Sherry,

Sorry to hear you are having such a hard time with cramping. Those muscle contractions can be very painful.

Some ideas that might help are getting enough calcium, staying hydrated, and stretching in the opposite direction of the cramp. Once the cramp takes hold try heat to help relax the muscle. If all else fails there are medications that can help.

Good luck with your appointment.

Take care,
