By the way, just go an email from the author of that book, and he said that the leg cramp section is virtually the same in both editions, FYI, just so you know. ;) Have good one and happy reading when your cousin finishes her copy.

Cannot email ALL of them. Dr. Wayne Hening is deceased, may he rest in peace. HE was the one who pulled up Dr. Ekbom's research from the 40's in the 70's, and that is when things started to happen in modern RLS research. The others are researchers also. Dr. Buchfuhrer is the main contributor, and he is a medical advisor for my groups. He also has a thriving RLS practice and that is all he does. FYI.

I emailed Dr. Buchfuhrer yesterday and he answered me. He says that the leg cramp section is virtually the same in both books. He suggests that it be read carefully, because leg cramps and RLS are still considered to be two totally different things, he ahs not changed it from one book to another. Since he wrote that, I believe what he says. The 2nd edition was printed to have more up to date med information. So, I guess I do not need to buy the newer one.
