I use to use crampex but they have stopped doing this so I either use tonic water or an ice cold wet flannel as it seem to be when I get hot I get cramp in places you should not get it

Immediate relief when I use a couple Tbs of apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. Hold your breath and slam it down or add a bit of honey to calm the bitter taste. It works within seconds.

A mountain hiker friend told us he and his friends always carry Cream of Tartar with them….1/8 tsp in a little water. My husband was plagued by night leg cramps and started taken this drink every night before bed and has not had a leg cramp.

When I have a leg cramp, I pull the big toe towards me with the heel of my other foot while lying down and will not release till it relaxes.

I have occasional leg cramps in the middle of the night. I tried the bar of soap under the sheets. That seemed to work. I used Irish Spring soap, and renewed it every 2 months. I believe some of the constituents must evaporate to give the relief, and over a period of time, are used up. That does not hurt the use as soap, so the used bar goes in the shower. I found a product called Hyland’s Leg Cramps, I think in Wal-Mart or CVS. I am amazed at how quick one tablet works. I keep a bottle in my travel case and another next to the bed. I stopped putting the Irish Spring in the bed, and use up those soap bars from the motels in the shower.

Hello I suffered from severe leg and foot cramps for years and used the soap remedy and it worked well for about 3 months then it started to wear off despite changing the soap regularly so i tried the organic pressed apple cider vinegar before going to bed this worked well for a few days before I stopped taking it due to the acid indigestion, however I now take golden rod a dried herb from my garden which is working well, still keeping the soap in the bed which lessens the cramps anyway

I would recommend half to a full teaspoon of golden rod stem and flower in tea to anyone suffering from severe leg cramps, I haven’t had a single attack of the cramps since starting it a few weeks ago

I have been having severe cramps in my toes and legs at night, but sometimes during the day also. I actually have had to pull over to the side of the road a couple of times for toe cramps that were so bad, I couldn’t keep my foot on the gas pedal. Dr. said I need arch support, went through all of that and it did not work. Then I turned to the internet. I did not try soap, because I feel like that must be a placebo effect. But a couple of people online and a friend told me about quinine. Since you can’t get the pills anymore, they said by tonic water. So I tried that and it upset my stomach. So I kept searching the internet and one man said that he found that putting a rolled up towel or a small pillow under the back of his knees worked. He said that he had tried everything and that this actually works. So, I thought what the heck, I’ll try it, and GUESS WHAT, IT WORKS!!!!!! I’ve been using a little pillow that I use for travel, and for the first few nights I thought is was probably a fluke, BUT IT’S BEEN 2 MONTHS!!! NO CRAMPS!!! NOT AT NIGHT AND NOT IN THE DAYTIME!!! MY HUSAND AND I ARE IN SHOCK, BECAUSE WE CAN’T FIGURE OUT WHY MORE PEOPLE AREN’T AWARE OF THIS. I KNOW IT SOUNDS TO SIMPLE, BUT TRY IT. You do have to sleep on your back, but it’s worth it. Just put the pillow right behind your knees! PLEASE ANSWER ON THIS FORUM IF IT WORKS FOR YOU, AND IF IT DOES PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. I THINK IT’S A MIRACLE!!!

Some friends we recently did a strenuous hike with said that this is something that usually brings on bad leg cramps. Their go to fix was to eat mustard! Sure enough I cramped that night, got up and took a tablespoon of mustard and no more cramps. They stock up on the little packets at fast food joints and keep by the bed.

I found a permanent cure to leg cramps that is good for you, and tastes good, too. It has proven to be my miracle solution that is also improving my stamina and overall health.

I have fought leg cramps for 44 years and have tried everything from supplements to extra salt. Now I drink two cans of nutritional beverages from Vemma. It’s the same product that TV celebrity, Dr. Oz, uses every day and recommends it to his patients.

Believe me when I say I’ve tried everything. I’ve consumed massive doses of multi-vitamins, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vitamin C over the years with little effect. The quinine that did work was taken off the market because my doctor says it’s linked to blood disorders. She recommended drinking tonic water–but to get the amount I need–means downing half a gallon every day and either overloading on sugar or filling my body with unhealthy sugar substitutes. Coconut water is another option, but again, I have to drink gargantuan amounts with no guarantees.

I decided to try the Veema products to improve my health, but I had no idea that they would solve my lifelong problem. One day after a vigorous workout in the garden, I knew that unrelenting leg cramps would soon follow. Nothing happened–no leg cramps. A few days later, I was away from home and forgot to bring my Veema, and shock of shocks, the leg cramps came back with a vengeance! I couldn’t believe it, so I tested again. Drink Vemma products–no leg cramps. Don’t drink them, and be in hop-around-the-floor, agonizing pain. I was so impressed with the product that I decided I never want to run out, so I became a distributor.

Please understand, this is not a sales pitch. I just know how much I suffered and how much more poor little Mom suffered. This is a good-for-you cure that also helps restore health on the cellular level to repair cells, fight free radicals, and keep organs functioning as they should. It just also happens to be my MIRACLE cure.

The best, and easiest remedy is to sip a tablespoon of bread & butter pickle juice. cramps are gone 45 seconds later. – my wife gets terrible cramps and pickle juice works every time she’s allergic to quinine and can’t take it and nothing else works.must have something to do with vinegar.

I haven’t been pregnant in 20 years but still get the leg cramps. Pointing toes up for calf cramp immediately cause cramps in the shin. You haven’t lived until you have calf, shin, inner thigh and foot cramps on both legs at the same time. To stretch one muscle contracts the other muscle. Organic apple cider vinegar (2 tbsp + 1/4 tsp baking soda, let fizz, add a couple oz cold water and drink…if in too much pain just swill the ACV straight) helps almost immediately. However, as a Hashimoto’s (low thyroid) patient there are ‘seasons’ where the muscles twitch in prep for cramping at any and all times of the day. I use EmergenC and Peter
Gilliam’s Natural Calm (pwd magnesium) to supplement. THis helps, too. I also rub copious amounts of magnesium oil (buy online) and coconut oil onto my legs. Usually sleep like a baby then. Looking forward to purchasing the Amish ‘Stops Leg Cramps’ soon.

I went to Sam s Club looking for pastries. They were giving free food samples. One was a drink. I was nt interested until the person said ‘it will take away your cramps’. That caught my attention because my 87 yr old mom was suffering from leg /thigh cramps to the point of extreme torture. I bought the product which is a powder in 30 small packets you dissolve in water and that same night after just one packet her cramps were gone, completely. It s called ECO DRINK. Also sold in costsco s. Best Wishes.

A bar of soap at the foot of the bed does work. My acupuncturist, who hadn’t heard of this remedy but didn’t discount it, said it must be that it changes the ph balance in the body. So what is soap? ALKALINE. That would explain why magnesiu supplements would work, as well as pickle juice (vinegar is alkaline) as well as the cider vinegar combos. The ‘Amish’ stopslegcramps is indeed helpful as well. And of course exercises stretching the foot and calves before bedtime is a good idea.

Walk on a cold tile floor.

My calves sometimes cramp up, when I’m laying down, and it’s extremely painful. I mentioned it to my ballet teacher one day, and she told me to walk on a cold tile floor. It works instantly. Once I set my foot on the tile floor, everything’s normal again. I have no idea why it works, but it does.

My boyfriend had terrible leg cramps that would wake him up in the morning EVERY morning. He would cry because they hurt so much. Then, I told him to try taking 1-2 capsules of 500 mg turmeric with 95% curcuminoids. For 3 weeks since taking this, he has not had ANY leg cramps except for one morning because he forgot to take turmeric the day before. Make sure you take it early in the day because it will disturb your sleep if taken later in the day. I myself think better and have more energy when I take it. I take it as a cancer preventative. Read the research on this herb. It’s amazing.

It might seem strange but a black domino between your big toe works immediately. My mum insisted we always had one in our house. Tried white domino but it does work as well. Don’t know how it works but it does.
