I have been having severe cramps in my toes and legs at night, but sometimes during the day also. I actually have had to pull over to the side of the road a couple of times for toe cramps that were so bad, I couldn't keep my foot on the gas pedal. Dr. said I need arch support, went through all of that and it did not work. Then I turned to the internet. I did not try soap, because I feel like that must be a placebo effect. But a couple of people online and a friend told me about quinine. Since you can't get the pills anymore, they said by tonic water. So I tried that and it upset my stomach. So I kept searching the internet and one man said that he found that putting a rolled up towel or a small pillow under the back of his knees worked. He said that he had tried everything and that this actually works. So, I thought what the heck, I'll try it, and GUESS WHAT, IT WORKS!!!!!! I've been using a little pillow that I use for travel, and for the first few nights I thought is was probably a fluke, BUT IT'S BEEN 2 MONTHS!!! NO CRAMPS!!! NOT AT NIGHT AND NOT IN THE DAYTIME!!! MY HUSAND AND I ARE IN SHOCK, BECAUSE WE CAN'T FIGURE OUT WHY MORE PEOPLE AREN'T AWARE OF THIS. I KNOW IT SOUNDS TO SIMPLE, BUT TRY IT. You do have to sleep on your back, but it's worth it. Just put the pillow right behind your knees! PLEASE ANSWER ON THIS FORUM IF IT WORKS FOR YOU, AND IF IT DOES PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD. I THINK IT'S A MIRACLE!!!
