The Doctors are In!
Listen to Dr. Dimitre and Dr. Kevin Discuss Primary Medicine in Canada.

Dr. Wahid Pabani, rural doc extraordinaire, is back for our 56th podcast to talk about Nocturnal Leg Cramps! OUCH!

This very common and distressing condition has many causes from the mundane (such as muscle fatigue) to the serious (such as peripheral vascular disease, or Parkinson Disease).

Thankfully, a focused history and physical exam can help rule out most worrisome etiologies. Unfortunately, Nocturnal Leg Cramps can be difficult to manage due uncertainties in optimal treatments. There is some limited evidence that exercise and stretching, vitamin B12 and Magnesium, and Calcium Channel blockers may be helpful.
