Factor 5 Leiden (blood clots) runs in my family, I haven't been tested, but lately feeling the typical symptoms in the back of my legs, behind the knees and calves, feels like a charly horse coming on. I started taking a daily baby aspirin hoping to get relief without having to go to a doctor. I take nightly melatonin (10mg). The only side effect of the aspirin is the frequent bruising, which I don't like. I will be increasing my melatonin gradually. Thank you Art for your helpful articles!
Anyone else here with FVL?
