Posted by audee

I am 47 years old and I have been getting muscle cramps in my ribs & back.

I have done streatches and thats when my back gets them,I can't even streatch like some people can when they get out of bed.I mostly get them in my ribs and back if I'm just sitting watching tv, or cough, laugh, anything I do. What can I do about this, looking for any help.

If it were me, I would begin by visiting a doctor for a checkup. Getting cramps while watching TV, coughing, laughing doesn't sound very good. Also, be very careful in choosing stretch exercises. Some stretches put stress on your body and are good for younger persons but not for us oldsters (I'm 73). Here are the stretches I do.
