    Hi, my calf muscles are getting rather sore and uncomfortable, they ache all the time and when I go to bed they prevent me from getting to sleep :(

    Anybody else having this trouble? Or have any tips on how to make it better?

    Thankyou

    Not in pregnancy bit i would have this on and off, gp said due to dehydration or lack of magnesium so plenty of water and i had a banana a day to see if it helped. It kinda helped but to be honest i think it was all in my head lol. I hope you get some respite soon :)

    Mine have started aching this week but it's the muscles due to me being in really flat ballet flats and sandals since the weather's been nice. before that I was in boots with a bit more lift in under the heel.

    I drink loads of water and take a magnesium supplement anyway so I know that's not helped me in this case as it is purely the muscles.

    Thanks ladies, I probably could drink more and the full on evil leg cramps have started :( I've been flexing my foot to stretch it out which has seemed to have taken the edge off, but I'm on my feet all day and my bump is really heavy so I blame that lol x

    The plantar fascitis shoes have really given me pain relief from my year long battle with plantar fasciitis. I have are so comfortable and really helps my planter fastidious. Able to walk now even long distances without much pain. Will definitely be buying another pair from orthofeet! I would recommend them to anyone with any kind of foot pain. Wonderful support all the way around.
