Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Not eating when consuming Stimulant is the main problem for me. Buy Protein and make some great shake (24g of Protein) per serving. that way you avoid excessive cathabolism and help your muscle and body.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Cramps get the worst during sex. It just kills a good hard on. Just keep a good supply of bananas on hand. If your cramping up eat one and the cramps will start to subside before you get through the whole thing.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

It's caused by lack of potassium, which is needed by the muscles to function so the muscles stiffen up. Eventually your whole body could go stiff and you would need to have a pottasium infusion at the hospital. Best potassium foods are Banana's, tomatoes, peanuts, cashew nuts. Not really sold in great quantities in vitamin form due to the high potential for overdose.

is the most accurate advice and would have saved me a trip to the hospital had i known, load up bit by bit on pottasium rich foods or suplements throughout any binge

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

I know from an experience last week, low potassium causes camps as well as many more severe symptoms. a meth binge is sure to deplete your pottasium, which starts with cramps, and leads to intense heart beat, panic attacks, hospitilization and more. But slowly keeping your pottasium up by eating bananas or taking a supplement per day will really help make the damage to your body a lot less.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Just like when working out you get cramps its seems to to be from yout muscles breaking down to rebuild with more muscle. Hydration is key.with sleep to rebuild muscle breakdown. As well as protien. So with metj your ip and not treating body to hydration and protiens and muscles breaking doen with nothing to rebuild them with. Sleep or nutrition. I try and drink a protien shake and a banana a day with chewy gummy vitamines. I try to drink water. Even if hard. Hope it works out for you. Leg cramps are horrible.

To answer your question yes sets in frequently in day two. Didnt know it dealt with potassium levels being low. In the words of B.I.G. - Uh, and if you don't know, now you know, n.....

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

just a random observation about how much quicker turn over of threads and comments are in this forum compared to the heroin forum which is my doc. meth users are much more interesting to converse and chat with it seems. no point just suprised how quick threads are added too. i with the heroin forums moved as fast.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Yeah I sometimes get mad cramps. Like to the point of complete loss of muscle control in my feet. Very painful, especially when coming down and still unable to sleep due to the constant cramping.

I've heard various things for why this happens. Some say dehydration, lack of potassium, lack of protein, lack of sleep, and preexisting circulation issues. I'd say all of these can play a role.

Prevention is the best way to deal with them. Once u got em they are hard to get rid of and any remedies often take time to work. First of all, stay hydrated, fed, and make sure u have a multivit or 2. Have some bananas at the very least to get your potassium. Discontinue use once cramping becomes serious. Sleep and absinence are the best cures at that point. Cramping worsen with dose and time without sleep. Keeping warm can help, as the cold can worsen circulation. Also avoid sitting in one position too long, sudden use of muscles can trigger a debilitating cramp, especially in the legs.

Beyond these basic prevention methods, some things can be taken to prevent or ease symptoms. Muscle relaxants work really well. Benzo's can be effective too. And though I don't reccommend it, many depressants have the effect of relaxing the body and muscles, such as opiates or alcohol. The dangers associated with mixing stimulants and depressants may turn you away from this, but they can be effective, if only to distract your mind and perhaps get some sleep.

I'm sure I've missed some, but these are the measures I'm immediately aware of. Hope it helps!

Can you reference or cite your source? I have heard this stated many time. I would like to confirm whether this is street myth or cited somewhere in a scientific journal.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Many drugs cause cramps in feet and legs. A sure cure is quinine. Many pharmacists will prepare you a bottle of quinine capsules without a prescription in the U.S. Another cure is an OTC called "Leg Cramps" by Hyland and are very effective in stopping the cramps.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Omg I'm so glad I'm not the only one. Luckily it hasn't happened in a couple weeks but there's a vein or muscle or nerve or whatever, and it goes from my V (lol u know what I mean by that) all the way down my left leg, usually when I reach climax this nerve makes my leg shake as I orgasm but after a long binge it cramps up and instead of feeling good and making my leg shake, it cramps up and hurts and my orgasm is less intense and freeing because the orgasm is forced to be limited due to true cramp. Like I said I haven't had this problem for a few weeks but when it happens it sucks.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned sodium..?
Alright guys listen up, your cramps are caused by lack of electrolytes. Sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium are all electrolytes. These chemicals are salts that allow electrical signals to flow through the body allowing communication between all your muscles in your body.
When you go on a binge, or are already in poor health, these electrolytes become depleted.. Causing cramps. I get this shit all the time when I take drugs, but I'm not in the best health. I've noticed that over the last couple years it's been goin on, NaCl (salt) is the one that depletes the fastest. So when I start to feel crampy, I put a couple pinches of salt under my tounge an hold it there till I feel better.. Usually 2-5min. Then I drink plenty of water or Gatorade to make sure I don't dehydrate myself further.
This happened to me on LSD at a festival an I was taken in an ambulence to the hospital an was informed of all the knowledge I just dropped.
I was told by my dad my whole life, cramps are caused from lack of potassium.. But he wasn't completely correct. The day of the festival, I ate probably 10 bananas an it didn't help. But once they put that saline water bag in me, my whole body eased. The rest of the night felt like I had worked out EVERY muscle in my body for a week straight. I was exhausted.
Hope this helps,
Stay healthy my tweeker friends (I know it's hard)

"Cramps are caused by lack of electrolytes. Sodium, potassium, calcium, magnesium are all electrolytes."
YEP.
And drugs, heat and lack of food can put them out of balance.....causing cramps.

V8 Juice....good source of both potassium & sodium.

Re: Muscle cramps caused by meth anyone?

Another odd but solution that really does work...pickle juice (dill ). Drink a shot glass full and the cramp goes away immediately. I didn't believe it until I tried it.
