      Today I recvd. an e-mail from the neurop. assoc. and it was in regards to a new study that was warning against the use of quinine for muscle cramping as there are serious side affects, if interested in details you can refer to the neurop assoc press relaease. They give some pretty good tips often that come via e-mail. Anything from alerts, new reasearch to assistance in getting disabled plackards.

      I have never tried quinine for my muscle cramps (hands will even just lock up at times), but I do find a tsp. of regular mustard works wonders, especially when the thighs are cramping like mad. Thanks for the warning…

      I am on their mailing list and got an email from them. Thanks for being with it to post it here! (I’ve been very busy with new job.)

      Pam –

      Mustard for cramping? Is that regular yellow mustard like you put on a sandwitch, or mustard powder like from a spice can? Does it really work? My hands cramp up horribly in the morning and it is very painful to upcramp them.

      give this a try for hand cramping: tonic water with quinine…8oz glass at night before bed. my husband had cancer and his hands cramped up unbelievably esp. at night. his oncologist said that quinine has horrible side effects so instead she suggested the tonic water. it took a few weeks get going but it worked insofar as the cramping was less severe and happened less often.
