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!

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:

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

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.
