Patient: Woman 62 Years
Complaint: This Lady was woken up at night by excruciating cramp in her calfs. This had been going on for a few months. She was getting tired, having her sleep broken most nights. She had to get out of bed in the middle of the night, stretch her legs, have a cup of tea, and try to go back sleep. The cramps might waken her 2 or 3 times a night.
Treatment: Acupuncture of trigger points in her calf muscles and Vitamin E (300 I.U.) each day for 1 month. After the first Acupuncture treatment, she had no further cramps. 2 further treatments with Acupuncture were given.
Prognosis: Excellent. After 1 year there has been no relapse.
