I've mentioned having cramps several times over the years. Thanks to one of my readers, Nadege, and my nephew Bob, I have a couple of remedies. Nadege, in a comment, wrote that her mother gave her Juvamine - magnésium + B6. Bob told me that when he was snorkeling, he got bad leg cramps and the guy at the snorkeling shop told him to drink Tonic Water. Something about the quinine in it that relieves cramps almost instantaneously. So far, I haven't had a reason to try either of them.

Small volcanoes add up to cooler climate. Airborne particles help explain why temperatures rose less last decade.

My husband went through a time
not long ago when he was kept
awake with terrible cramps, not
only in his legs but in his
back. He finally asked a
pharmacist (at Walmart, I think),
and he told him to try a
product called "Leg Cramps"
made by a Hyland. He's never had
another cramp. It does contain
quinine, by the way.
