Brandywine, I agree with George. Soaking your feet in a warm deep bowl of epsom salts solution is a real soother for general aches. You could invest in an inflatable paddling pool to have a body soak in, if you have a spot to put it.

Ooh I didn't think of chucking epson salts in the pool! Great idea, we have a spa which is good but the inflatable pool is great on these hot days.

I got a foot spa ages ago and used to put them in there.

I take a magnesium supplement daily and have found it really helpful for my restless legs, in fact I won't do without it! Still get cramp though!

I used to suffer restless leg syndrome at night. For a completely different reason I was given a blood test which showed I was very low in iron. Was put on iron tabs for 3 months, and one of the "side effects" was no more RLS! I have since read up on it and iron deficiency is a common cause of it. =) I also take magnesium daily.
Sometimes you can trust a horse, sometimes you can't, and sometimes you just have to.

Cramp can be low salt ... or is that too simplistic

fha ha! Yes GS! Cramp has more than one cause. I only wish it was low sodium in my case, it would make my doctor very happy! In my case it is to do with the nerve supply to my right leg. Inappropriate messages. That's the restless leg cause too. As with the reason we give it to horses, it setyles the nerve cells a bit and steadies the firing.

Heidiho interesting I used to get RLS and can be low in iron or B12 as I don't eat red meat (only on the low side side of normal).

MM maybe you could try the homeopathic stop cramp and let us know if it works? The army doctor who did all the Triathlons swore by it but doesn't believe in homeopathy.

And don't forget sweet smelly bathsalts! Radox was simply green colored mg salt. I wonder if it's still sold.

Yes they still do the green radox. I love it cause it smells nice and bubbles, glad it has magnesium in it cause always wondered why it worked so well. In fact if I can get organised to clean the bath I might have one tonight
