Has anyone here ever had bad effects from taking too much B12? (Like 5,000 or 10,000)? I'm now just starting to research the possibility of too much B12 driving down potassium levels, and perhaps causing muscle cramps and twitching. ... (more)

I cramp only in my feet and only when swimming and mostly in summer. I exert much more vigorously when I play soccer, no cramps with soccer, ever. And neither when I bike or work in the yard.

I have noticed a major increase in the incidence of muscle cramping since I started the Paleo diet. Is this a common thing? If so, what can I do to avoid this?
