Why Your Legs May Give Way
Dr. Travis Stork: Grammy Award winning R&B singer Mary J. Blige has scored multiple hits during the 90s and the 2000s. She recently approached us with a very interesting question.
Mary J. Blige: Hi doctors, why is it that your leg just goes out for no reason? You could just get up and just almost fall back down. What is that about? And please don’t give me any bad news.
Dr. Travis Stork: No real bad news here and there is some wonderful medical scientific explanation for this. You know there is that element of the mind and body connection and it sometimes, either you’ve been on a long run, you’ll suddenly stop and your knees will sort of give out to you and some of that is you do need your mind to contract those muscles, keep you standing and that’s that split second whether it’s cramps or you just stop suddenly, your knees can give out, and fortunately, it doesn’t mean there’s any major underlying problem, right Jim?
Dr. Jim Sears: Right, you know, especially if you’re exhausted to a lot of exercise or I was actually at that concert for Mary J. Blige. I got a little weak in the knees myself.
Dr. Travis Stork: She was impressive.
Dr. Jim Sears: Her energy is crazy.
Dr. Lisa Masterson: She was fantastic.
Dr. Travis Stork: But speaking of calcium, if you’re getting a lot of leg cramps, maybe you need some more calcium so like you’ve mentioned before.
