    Why does my calf hurt so much??

    Is it the Clen ? I've been on this cycle (my 1st) for a week and a half now. by the 3rd day, I started experiencing pain in my left calf. I have a high thresh hold for pain, so I'm not being a little wuss here, it truly is painfull! It happens every single evening, around the same time, like clockwork. It lasts anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, maybe longer, but I always make myself go to sleep so I don't notice it anymore.

    Is this common with Clen? I read somewhere that you can cramp up without enough fluids while cycling clen, but I have been drinking enough water.

    clen can cause cramping, but it would be wierd for it to happen at the same time every day.....When are you taking your clen, and how much...

    it may be the clen and yes u need plenty of fluids. your not dehydrated ur losing electrolytes so u need more than plain water. try half gatorade and half water combo and see if that helps.

    take some taurine, 5g a day as well as upping your water intake.

    clen depletes taurine production in the liver which causes the cramping

    I think it happens around the same time because I take my clen at the same time every day.

    Here is my schedule of dosing;

    Day 1- 60mg
    Day 2- 60mg
    Day 3- 60mg
    Day 4- 80mg
    Day 5- 80mg
    Day 6- 80mg
    Day 7- 100mg
    Day 8- 100mg
    Day 9- 100mg
    Day 10- 120mg
    Day 11- 120mg (today)
    Day 12- 120mg
    Day 13- 100mg
    Day 14- 80mg

    I split them into 3 doses, one at 8:30 am, then at 12:15 pm, and finally at 4:00 pm.

    I take a multi-vitamin, which has potassium, but I guess it's not enough. I don't want to add Gatoraide, it's not gonna go well with my diet, but I will check out this powderaide stuff if it's carb and sugar free.

    Thanks for the input.

    Love bananas! And it is true about oral multi-vitamins, but it's kinda hard to eat all that in regular food. Is there a way I can main line them? Like b12 shots with other vitamins in there?!

    potassium and Taurine
    Taurine is essential 2 grams a day should do it. It's cheap too.
