Cramping in the knee during sleep?(3 posts)

Cramping in the knee during sleep?Dave Hickey
Mar 10, 2003 11:14 AM
Lately, I've experienced cramps in my knee when I'm sleeping. It only happens when I'm sleeping but it's enought to wake my up. I haven't changed my exercise routine. My normal schedule is running Mon and Wed and cycling on Tue, Thur, Sat and Sun. FYI, I'm 45 years old and never had knee problems. It only happens when I'm sleeping. It doesn't bother me when I'm awake. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have had persistent discomfort in my right knee, which would increase at night. About 8 weeks ago I had several moles removed from my side and back, which required that I change my usual sleeping position (on my right side) for a few weeks. Although the knee discomfort still is there (I am beginning PT tomorrow), the discomfort decreased at night when I shifted my sleeping position.

I'll try it. Mine is the right knee and I sleep on my right side also. Thanks
