My partner who is 63/male has muscle spasms almost every night in only one leg. He has to get up every night and roll his muscle with a golf ball, stretch, etc. in the middle of the night. This disturbs his sleep every night. He did damage his leg in the 70's with a chain saw and went through the muscle. We rub it with all kinds of ointments. We hit it, massage it, do acupuncture. We have tried everything. What else can we try? He is taking calcium and magnesium and vitamins. He takes a sleep aid and he still can't get it to stop. HELP!View Thread
