It only lasts a few hours so I wait until the spasms start, usually around 3:00 AM. Then I apply it to my leg.
Essentially, the periformis muscle squeezes the sciatic nerve and the spasm rips down the leg. Lying on your hip or buttock whilst sleeping will trigger it.
It took a couple of goes but finally I got an injection of cortisone into the lateral part of the performis. It was deliberately done to puncture the muscle rather than drizzle cortisone over it. Haven't had a cramp since.
I do also take reasonable amounts of magnesium on a daily basis.
