  • Hello

    I am no expert in the running field,I have been running since May, had shin splints and am running ok for now. I have leg ache at night when im in bed and I have found that taking magnesium tablets an hour before I go to bed has helped or eased the discomfort. I also take them through the day, but mainly at night.

     My legs feel really heavy and hot, start throbbing and then I have to get up and put a cold compress on my legs

    Hope this helps


  • thanks jooles - glad its not only me!

    I will try it out.

    Many thanks gill
