Last month I suddenly had terrible leg spasms in the early morning. About 10 times I couldn't stand, I had great pain in my right thigh.
It was like an earthquake in my leg!
I went to the hospital and had many checks, but the doctor couldn't find any problem with my muscles or bones.
I was very worried.
I did a lot of Internet searches and talked to many students and friends. One common theme emerged: dehydration.
Are you drinking enough water? Are you in dry rooms for hours a day?
I started drinking MUCH more water. I thought about my working environment. I bought this humidifier and a humidity meter.
Imagine is a hard space to heat. The building has bad insulation - so as soon as I turn down/off the heater it gets cold quickly. Yes - I KNOW the room is too hot sometimes!!!
And dry. Normally the humidity is about 60%. But with heating that quickly becomes 30%.
Students usually come for an hour. I often work in this place for 6 or 7 hours.
So I think my body becomes dehydrated. Muscles that are dehydrated have problems. So maybe that was why I had the leg spasms.
Anyway - I will try.
English people NEVER think about lack of air humidity. England is a wet country! We think about damp and clothes or homes getting damp. But not about bodies getting too dry. :-))
