My cramps are gone


I've been on Imbruvica for well over one year and I have often had some really bad cramps, mostly at night. Lately I have developed boils. I don't like to take antibiotics, so I thought that if i started self treating the boils they would go away. Ha! Was I wrong. One of my boil treatments was to soak in a bath of Epson salts, it didn't stop the boils but is seems like it totally stopped the wicked cramps. Cramps are a non issue to me for over half a year. I would suggest that if you have cramps, try soaking in the tub with 2 cups of Epson salts in it. Even if it doesn't work, it is very relaxing.

I wonder if it has to do with a magnesium deficiency and the epsom salts address this. Great that you found something that works for you!

I think it is the high amount of magnesium sulfate in Epson salts. Do you suffer from cramps?
