I have suffered with leg cramps that wake me up out of a deep sleep for years. Usually this happens in the early morning hours. I have noticed that the only way I can stop the cramps is to have a bowel movement, and what do you know, every time this happens, I really need to have a bowel movement. I have searched the web over and over to see if anyone else has made this connection, but to no avail. I would love to know the scientific/medical reason a full bowel causes such excruciating leg cramps.
