How can I stop leg swelling?
Try vigorous stretching of the affected muscle (for example, stretch your calf muscles by stretching your legs up). Move your legs, get a massage or force yourself to walk. It may help with ice or heat – use a heating pad or take a warm bath. (See “Management and Treatment” for additional recommendations.)
Unfortunately, there are no medications or injections that can directly relieve leg cramps. However, there are ways to prevent swelling in the first place (see “Prevention”).
