    Top tip for leg cramps...

    Post by Blyth Spirit on Thu 22 Aug 2013 - 14:41

    If anybody suffers from leg cramps whilst sleeping here's a top tip:

    Have a couple of mouthfuls of Tonic water before you go to bed, believe me it works.

    Apparently its the quinine in it that does the trick.


    Have suffered in the past but since losing nearly 2 stone on the 2 on 5 off/fasting diet/500 calories diet (or whatever its a called in your neck of the woods) leg cramps got worse whilst body adjusted to new eating regime.


    Now its settled and leg cramps gone and nearly 2 stone lighter, jobs a good in.


    Give it a try if you suffer from leg cramps bet it works.






    and before its asked no, no gin allowed !

    I usually get them the first few weeks after starting badminton but they disappear as my super-fitness returns...  It is bloody agony though! Mermaid has kittens when I suddenly shoot my leg straight up in bed shouting AARRRRGGGHHHH!
