Leg Cramps

So yesterday I was talking about how every time I get the Benlysta infusions, I get leg cramps. Well, I realized that it’s actually the steroids I receive with the Benlysta that cramp up my legs. I get Solumedrol, which I read last night that it depleats your potassium and in turn causes the leg cramps. So last night, I drank some juice before bed that has potassium in it (Silk fruit and protein, yum, be careful of the sugar though), and boom, no more leg cramps.
