I had leg cramps nearly all my life, well before I had kidney disease and I buy the homeopathic remedy, Hylands Leg Cramp Remedy, at Walmart. It has a small amount of quinine which relieves leg cramps quickly for me, hope it works for you. I also eat bananas for the potassium.
Here are the recent answer to this question.
I recently took my mother to a cardiologist. She frequently has leg cramps. He suggested drinking a glass of quinine (tonic) water each night before bedtime. It has helped reduce the leg cramps.
I am a certified creative healer and learned that restless legs are caused by kidney problems. When the leg problems start at night a drink of water with fresh lemon juice in it helps me so much. I don't know if this will help you but it is worth a try. I find that if I get enough water during the day the problems are way less.
