i've just learnt with disappointment that it is not clear the origin of this painful disorder hence it is not easy to alleviate or prevent it. I've been suffering from this since many years but lately it got worse. Probably it depends from the fact I have to sit for most of my working hours. It is quite stressing to wake up in the middle of the night in deep pain; usually located in the calf area. Doctor gave me some magnesium+potassium powder to drink before sleep and it's helping but not completely solving the problem. Anyone experienced the same?

That sounds miserable, and I'm willing to bet that it's restless leg syndrome. There is no relief except to get up and walk around, or if there is someone kind enough to massage your legs the relief would feel wonderful! There are some medications that could help, but you'd have to talk that over with a Dr. Either way, I hope you find some relief, soon!
