    Thanks guys.. At the moment he basically begs me to massage his legs.. (which I do, even though it's 2,3am in the morning and I'm dead tired).. He is due to have a blood test soon for other stuff and I think his iron levels were ordered too.. Will be interesting to see results.

    You need magnesium tissue salts, Epsom salt baths and magnesium topical cream or arnica cream. They all work when I get muscle cramps. Work for kids of all ages

    I went to the pharmacist who print me out a list of fresh food items that had lots of magnesium in them. Cashew nuts have the highest amount of magnesium, so DS gets a handful of unsalted cashews before dinner.
    You can use tissue salts as a temporary fix, but it's best to just increase their magnesium intake via their normal meals/diet.

    Goodluck. I have to sit on top of DS and pin him to the bed to get him to take Painstop as he hates it. Yet it helps really quickly and it is a last resort thing in case massaging isn't working.
