Hi Jo,

Sorry your husband has this painful symptom. It is definitely worth seeing your GP about this.

Other members may have some tips for you.  Meanwhile you might find our publication with information and advice about muscle cramps useful: https://www.parkinsons.org.uk/content/muscle-cramps-and-dystonia-information-sheet. Hope this helps.

Best wishes,
