      It seems like some oncologists are amazingly unaware of side effects. At least mine are. They don't think any of my medical conditions are related to the cancer or treatment. Here's a simple answer that I recently heard. Leg cramps can be caused by dehydration so drink a cup of water before bed. I hope it could be that simple.

      I've had bad leg cramps from tamoxifen for about 3 years and tried tonic water, drinking more water, stretching the muscles in my legs and feet....to no avail! From a chance conversation with a retired doctor I have now been drinking a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate in a small glass of water every night and it is fantastic! I have been sleeping through the night, nearly every night, for the first time in years. It works really fast so if I start getting the in the evening then I can take some and the cramp goes away within 10 minutes or so. Cheaper than tonic water too.

      Thanks for your information Katyg. I love this site. It's people going through treatment who know the issues and help each other find answers.
