2 days ago, one afternoon, my middle finger on my left hand started feeling a little painful wen i touch the edge of my nail. today it has become more swollen and bigger, and painful wen i press down ...
Definately blood circulation. Try stretching a little longer.
You've got to stretch your legs and make sure you're getting enough potassium (bananas work good) and water and/or Gatorade.
drink more water that might help
There is this pickle juice they sell at the grocery store that comes in a little bottle. It looks like regular pickle juice, but bikers use use it to keep from getting cramped up on long bike rides and excersises.
you should try put more potassium in your diet, like bananas!
i sometimes have leg cramps at night and my doctor recommended that i try eating aleast one banana 3 times week instead of over the counter med. it is cheaper and just as effect. I has been quite a while since i have had issues
good luck i know they are very painful hope this helps
You need potassuim. Eat bananas. Lots of bananas. Also do leg stretches like bending down to touch your toes for your thighes . And to stretch your calves, put the tip of your foot on some type of ledge (it doesnt have to be high, just a half a foot would be fine) and bring your heels down to the bottom of whatever it is your standing on.
There are a variety of leg and hamstring stretches that will help, before and after you play. But some muscle cramping is caused by vitamin deficiency. You may want to up your potassium before you play. Bananas are a good source or a multivitamin. Maintaining a good electolyte balance may help by hydrating with a sports drink.
I have them when I am in bed, have been told magnesium, calcium and zinc deficiencies. So a good multi vitamin w/all these should help. When I do have one....I push my heel down and bring my toes up as hard as I can....it seems to stretch out the calve muscle and take the pain away.
you need to do a lot of stretches.....do it daily...not just before playing sounds like your muscles in your leg are very tight....i know there is some medication for that but i can remember the name...it is prescription.....and starts w/ cir.....sorry all i know...
