    http://crampeze.com.au/ magnesium and vit B? but gin and tonic sound better. I sometimes take PKs to break the cycle.

    I cant stomach tonic water. My mom worksin a nursing home, and said they take theirs with lemon juice... I cant get over the bitterness of the tonic... my legs are so jumpy at night anymore.
    I have more to claim.
    I have to fight through the hard places
    to go and get it!

    Night cramps that some people have (esp. as they age) are different from the spasticity or spasms seen in people with SCI. I have seen no evidence that quinine is helpful for spasticity in SCI.

    For those where marijuana can be legally obtained, I noticed that the one time I tried a pot brownie in 1985 to try find some pain relief (it didn't help, it actually heightened my perception of the pain that I had), my muscles were almost completely loose. I didn't have bad spasms, but my legs would normally spasm some when I was moved, or sometimes when the sheet moved over them, but that didn't happen after the brownie.

    Proofread carefully to see if you any words out.

    Yes, marijuana has been shown to be effective in a number of studies related to SCI neuropathic pain and spasticity. If you can get it legally, that can be an advantage, since you won't get a "get out of jail free" card if you are caught in possession in a state where it is not legal just because you are in a chair.
