Twiching Legs
Hi there,

Every night, as Im falling asleep my legs start twitching, some nights it gets quite bad, like spasems and it keeps me and my husband awake. Im 24 and on no medication. What can be causing this?

This could be due to a shortage of Magnesium. Take 3 to 4 Magnesium tablets just before bedtime - with half a glass of water. If there is no change after a week, I would recommend you discuss this further with your family doctor.
