Magnesium is what helps me during an attack. I put a tablet under my tongue (something to otherwise avoid because it's not good for tooth enamel).
This can be very scary, can't it? I hope everything's okay and unrelated to hypo.
It isn't a pill, but I drink a bottle of gatoraid for immediate relief. Long term a bananna a day keeps the kramps away
My dad used to get charleyhorses all the time and his doctor told him it's a lack of potassium and to eat bananas. He does, and never got them again!
THANKS so much .. I will try that.
I made an appt and got in for Friday ... I just found out my Endo is moving away .. she was wide-open and I'm glad I called for an appt to wrap things up before she goes. I am so disappointed. I'm usually not ticked off when a Dr of mine leaves .. but she is special .. one of a kind .. CR@P.
It usually has something to do with a Potassium problem - temporary usual.
eat bananas - and a mag pill may work along with it. Or pop a potassium pill (citrate only)
OK out of the box her my friend ------
I read and adviced my mom to try something I read a while back. take your average bar of soap dial - zest - ivory ---- whatever.
place the bar in between the sheets you sleep in . No more cramps.
and it worked for her more times then not.
Thanks for the banana info! I'm going to try that myself.
