    I've heard of using a heating pad on your tummy. Never tried it, but I've heard it works. I'd love to know how to easy up cramps in my legs.

    My doctor told me to eat salads (for lunch or dinner) 1 week before my "friend" arrived and after a couple of months, the cramps were as bad--it must be something in the vegs that help with cramps because I'm still doing it after almost 25 years. I also don't eat any fried food the week before as well. He also said a little wine won't hurt either and that's the best he could have given me.

    I had a nurse tell me once to point and flex my foot on the leg that cramps, works great to get through a charlie horse really fast. Something about slowly stretching the muscles to get the cramp to work out.

    As for tummy cramps-I don't have a solution for that one, sorry.

    For menstrual cramps alot of herbal folks recomend ginger, like ginger teas, or ginger ale. My high school nurse used to let girls lay down with a heating pad on their tummies for one class period. About 45 minutes. For me I take a hot soaking bath and take a genric midol type product.

    I was told by my doctor long ago that you have to take Tylenol or whatever before the cramps start. Once they start you are doomed. At the very first sign of my period starting, I take two Tylenol and then two more in 3 hours. I haven't had cramps in a very long time.

    Thank you
    I'll tell you what I've always used, 15 drops of Motherwort Tincture (up to 10 drops more if you are overweight) in a mug of whatever kind of tea you prefer. This treatment works in 5-10 minutes.
    Try to avoid dairy products during your time as this can increase cramping. In addition to relieving cramps quickly, it is calming and works wonders during times when your nerves are frayed or you are stressed.

    Motherwort Tincture (don't bother with capsules- they're no where nears as effective and aren't readily absorbed by the body).

    (Motherwort can be purchased at most decent health food stores for around $6 - $9 a bottle).
    ~Enjoy!~

    This may sound weird but the other day I was having really bad cramps and the only thing I had on hand was Tylenol and Excedrin back & body. I figured the Tylenol wouldn't do much so I tried the Excedrin and believe it our not it worked pretty good and it also helped my back ache.

    Sometimes leg cramps can be caused by an electrolyte imbalance or mineral deficiency. There are some suggested supplements in this article.
    Prevention's Healing with Vitamins Leg Cramps


    On a personal note, I used to have sciatica years ago. I started taking ALA (Alpha Lipoic Acid) to assist with my diabetes. Imagine my surprise when my sciatica cleared up! When that happened, I started telling other diabetics about it. Some of them had restless leg syndrome and it stopped their restless leg syndrome! It is an antioxidant which is water soluble and it is cheap so you have nothing to lose by trying it. It is located in the supplement aisle of any drug store or department store with a pharmacy.

    Hope something in here can help you find relieve.
