In Reply to: Leg Cramp Remedy? posted by Carole on September 11, 2000 at 23:19:07:
: I was curious if anyone had ever heard of this old-fashioned remedy for leg cramps. I just read this sugggestion last night; the person saying that it had worked for them in that they had not suffered from leg cramps since doing this the past two years.
: Here it is:
: Take a bar of soap, out of it's wrapper, put rubber bands around it to use for anchors, and pin it to the underside of your sheet so your legs rest on it at night.
: Now, has anyone ever heard of this or tried it?? I'm such a "princess and the pea" person, I'm afraid the lump under my sheet would keep me awake!
: What do you think??
I read the same thing about the bar of soap.The only thing is the sheet usually ends up under the blanket and on the floor with Bill.He has the dystonia also at night.I give him baby aspirin and massage.He also takes Sinemet before he goes to bed.It's when the darn stuff wears off.
