    When you get a cramp, put table salt under your tongue, and the cramp will instantly go away.

    Good ol' Charlie Horse huh? I hate those and get them sometimes.... man those hurt, and I mean bad..... the worst is when you can't get rid of it right away and you just lay there in pain and can feel it twisting crap around in your leg. Then the next day you have gimp around from it....

    Do you have any Calcium Magnisium vitamins? Cramps will go away with that (awsome replacement for Midol too /forums/images/icons/wink.gif). The stuff gets rid of twitches too!

    Just a little bit of salt will do it, like a pinch. I ocassionally get cramps in my calves when I'm sleeping. It's a hell of a way to wake up! Now I keep a packet of salt in my nightstand. Once I get that salt under my tongue, the cramp is gone in about 2 seconds.

    Lara is right.... it's also from lack of calcium..... cuz my old Sunday School teacher in HS told me that and when I drank milk and ate cheese and things like that I never got em.... I think it's right.....
