Customer Question

Hi , My name is***** am 51 & I have suuferred fro severe muscle spasams of the inner thigh. These happen after a lot of time that I am on my feet. Now I hydrate properly by starting the night before I am going to be walking for about 6 hrs..I drink before during & after my time on my feet. when I get home & relax. then go to get up I get unbearable pain in my inner thigh. I am not ashamed to admit that it almost reduces me to tears. What I would like to know is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening & when it does happen is there anthing that can be taken to relieve them. These episodes last for anywhere from 5 to 10 min. & are excruciating. hope you can help.
