muscle Cramps after recovering from natural healing of a herniated disc

hello all, i've been doing better with my L5-s1 herniated disc with swimming andbeing active and reached up to 80% of natural healing , till suddenly i started having heavy cramps in my left leg, especially in the morning.
i cant sit and cant lay down on my back,also cramps goes on and on, and in the morning, i struggle to stand up, for like 10-20 mins until everything turns fine, as if i have nothing. and can walk or even stand up for 10 hours or walk or anything,
till i get back home and start struggling again with cramps.

    Your potassium levels may be low. Quinine water also helps. It may be that you have a pinched nerve that is contributing to the muscle cramps as well. Stretching excercises, and topical creams for muscle spasms and cramps also may be helpful.
