lysergia Posted July 30, 2011 Share Posted July 30, 2011 okay i've had this wicked pain in my calf that hasn't gone away for five days (without a triggering injury). i stayed home for two whole days this week to rest it, made sure i was well hydrated, ate bananas and yogurt and cheese (potassium and calcium), used heat and advil, all that stuff. right back to severe cramping as soon as i started walking again. surfed around a bit and i guess this is a possible SE of seroquel. so i read what one would do about it (in the short term) if that were the case. benzos & NSAIDS together, says teh interweb. so yesterday i tried it and lo and behold, i could WALK to my neighbours and back with minimal pain last night. of course it's back again this morning, and as soon as i feel awake enough to swallow more benzos, i'll repeat what worked. i may be totally imagining that this is the seroquel. i thought at first it was dehydration, but i'm not sure about that now since it hasn't gone away. anybody get these? what did you do about it? i'm scared to give up seroquel because i don't know about any other AAP that works for BP depression, and the AD class is officially a no-go for me ever again (according to pdoc, and i agree). i don't like the idea of more benzos but if i can keep the quel by treating the cramps this way i'll do it. hell, both pdocs i've seen in the last few months don't want me off the clonazepam anyway. so yeah, if you've had this and fixed it, or if you think i'm overreacting, please i would love some feedback!
