    Keep us in the loop and I hope your GP can help you . I firmly believe no one should be in pain , I think that’s because I’m such a wimp

    Take extra magnesium before bed for night cramps. If your on meds from your doctor check its ok to have high dose magnesium though as it can interfere with some meds

    I was told that night cramps are mainly due to dehydration. I suffer quite a bit with cramp – any time of the day or night so i will be very interested to hear what you find out! I’m never dehydrated – I drink far too much tea for that! Please let us know how you get on.

    My GP has changed my statins from Atorvastatin to Pravastatin Sodium as I suspect the Atorvastatin is the main factor
    Also had full range blood test to see if deficient in any way (other than bonkers) ~ I will get the results next week some time.

    Good that you had bloods done they should show if there’s anything untoward! I hope the change of statins help! If your post surgery do you still need them? I came off mine straight away x take care x

    The ‘bonkers’ bit really made me snort! I love that word.

    Seriously though, i hope the change of statins helps a bit. Keep in touch about your bloods too as that will be very interesting for many of us ๐Ÿ˜‰

    How far post op are you and have their been any major changes in your circumstances? If you are still under the care of your team, you should go and see them. If not, ask your GP to refer you back to them.

    In the meantime, I would suggest you keep a food diary. This will help you to see where some changes could be made, if necessary. It is VERY easy to slip into habits that are counter-productive – we have all been there believe me!

    I hope you can get the help you need. Please keep in touch.

    Hi again Pete

    Can you be referred back to the dietitian? It may sound daft but sometimes we don’t see that we are making bad choices until someone else points it out! You could ask your GP to refer you back. It may take a bit of time but in the meantime, the food diary might go some way to illustrating any problems that might be occurring that you hadn’t realised.

    Hope you get some more advice soon. I’m not a clinician so can’t offer anything remotely clinical/medical!

    ps thanks for the nice ps ๐Ÿ˜‰
