    yes, Used to all the time.

    Now take Mirapex and calcium and they have stopped for the most part.

    My hubby swears by calcium at night for me. He should know I guess. He's the one I kick and wake up!!!!!!!!!!

    I also have Restless Legs, so my legs really give me fits at times.
    For the Muscle Spasms, I find Soma works the best for me.

    I take it you have this a lot ?
    I used to be a Dancer, and I always knew when I stopped, I would have trouble with my Legs, and Feet.

    Didn't know I was going to have other conditions that make it worse,

    When my quads twitch, I sometimes think it's my cell phone vibrating, so I check it just to make sure :) ...Besides meds or diet, I've found stretching can really help the spasms. The one I do for my quads is kneeling down on the floor, bracing myself with my hands behind me (kinda like getting ready for a crab-walk), and then lean my hips up and forward, while slightly arching my back, to get a good quad stretch.
