Greetings all,

If anyone gets leg cramps [charlie horse] or foot cramps, I've found that quinine sulfate [generic quinamm] 260 mg does the trick. However, I still have aching legs and was wondering if anybody out there has a herbal cure for it? I don't want to take the various pain pills on the market.

Appreciate any help.

Cheers, JULY

I've found that my legs ache when I have a calcium and/or potassium deficiency. Have you tried a multi-vitamin? (maybe just eat more bananas...)

I spend most of my work day on may feet and used to have problems with both aching legs and leg cramps, especially at night. I didn't find that calcium alone helped, but a combination of calcium and magnesium has essentially eliminated the problem.

Years ago someone suggested that I take Dolomite for leg cramps and aches. Apparently, for some people they are caused by a deficiency of Calcium and Magnesium.

The ones I take have 158.3 mg. of calcium and 75 mg. of magnesium in each tablet. I take one a day, and rarely have leg problems now (maybe once or twice a year). If a cramp does occur, I take four of the tablets.

To anyone who has a problem with blood platelets should not take any quinine products.
