  • My calf on my right leg used to cramp up in the night... I now eat a banana a day and they have almost completely gone..., I am now very sick of bananas but look on it as a med and dutifully eat one a day....

    So sorry for these cramps they are horrible

  • I have never had cramps, but I do feel for you - it must be awful!

    My every day pains are quite enough for me, without getting cramp on top of it. I wonder what's in the bananas that is helping you, VG - I love mashed banana with milk and a bit of sugar, so maybe that's why I never suffer!

  • Aha I know the answer to this bananas have serotonin in them fibromites often have low serotonin levels , bananas also have potassium which helps with cramps, that's why tennis players eat them...

  • OOH! Well, i shall eat more than ever in that case! No wonder I'm so unbearably chirpy - I was blaming the bird seed sarnies!

  • Has Sandra been giving you reciepes again??

  • You poor thing I know what you mean I get them at the top of my back just where my bra strap sits, I end up crawling around trying to get away from the pain, I found if I drink a pint of water it eases off as it make the muscles move but it still hurts like hell for ages till it quits completely, but I still have the quinine 1 at nite, I can get these cramps day or nite I never kbow when they gonna hit, big gentle hugs to you.

  • Are you taking magnesium or using Epson salts in a food bath? Brilliant for cramp. I used to get it badly. I've been reading about a weird remedy for restless legs and put a bar of soap by your legs,as you sleep. It has to be a basic deoderant etc....and one bar lasts for 6 months. No idea why it works !

  • i have had cramp in my tummy for the last few days, and it turned to diarrhea and sickness, i now feel like someone has run me over with a truck.

    Someone on here was saying something about a bar of soap under the covers works??. think i'm remembering the right thing??
