remedy for cramp that works

my wife used to get bad cramp in her legs almost every night until we were told to get 4 corks tie them together and with a cake of soap still in the wrapper put them in between the sheets and she has never had cramp since we have now told 4 friends about it and there cramp has also disappeared


lol... strange things work sometimes!!

Lofl .... very strange remedy indeed


I was told to pinch the skin between my thumb and index fingers on each hand with the opposite thumb and index finger. I often do this if I get calf cramps and it does stop... but I don't know if the cramp would have gone anyway or whether concentrating on pinching just distracts me from the pain! I think the best way is simply to consciously just try to relax the muscle and then gently stretch it as the pain disappears.


That's a acupressure point for relieving headaches.


therse quite a few for headaches though isnt there? like the top or your nose or something aswell?


I use two spots along my eyebrows for headaches. When you have a sore head, it really hurts when you apply pressure on these spots but as the pain diminishes, so does your headache. It's brilliant! http://acupressureonline.org/ explains accupressure and gives directions as well as a long list of links for help with various medical complaints, etc. throughout the body. You can choose your treatment from this list: CHOOSE YOUR TREATMENT: Headache and Migraine: Frontal Headache | Back of the Head | Side of the Head | Top of the Head | Pain in the Eye (Migraine behind the eye) Local Pain: Jaw | Toothache | Ear | Neck | Shoulder | Wrist | Hand | Backache | Hip | Knee | Ankle | Foot Cold and Flu: Sore throat | Sinusitis | Loss of Voice | Earaches | Allergy Nervous System: Anxiety Attacks and Nervousness | Depression | Insomnia | Fainting | Hiccoughs | Memory and Concentration Improvement Cardiovascular: Angina | Palpitations | High Blood Pressure Treatment Abdominal Discomfort: Constipation | Diarrhea | Heartburn | Stomachache Women only: PMS and Painful Periods | Hot Flashes | Acupressure During Pregnancy Urinary Problems: Bed-wetting | Incontinence | Urinary Retention Other: Weight Loss | Nose Bleeding | Allergy | Itching | Asthma | Decreased Libido | Hangover Treatment


Thanks for all this information everyone, very interesting!


Will try the corks and soap - anything's worth a shot if it works


Sounds crazy, but still very interesting.
