Reply To: Remedies for cramping?

Cramping has been a big problem for me. I am CIDP, 7 years out. The night before I went to the emergency room, for the second time, I was having cramps between the upper thighs and the crotch level (but not in the crotch itself). There was no way to stretch these out. I can’t remember how they subsided, maybe by trying to walk.
I still get cramps, but not in that area, thankfully. Mine are usually in the shin to the toes, on top. They are almost always symmetrical. I take vitamin D, which seems to help. I also use some cold spray, which works like a miracle. I spray it on liberally, and within a minute I start to improve. Here’s what I use: http://www.amazon.com/Salonpas-Pain-Relieving-Spray-Ounce/dp/B00759WR7I/ref=pd_sim_hpc_18 .
