Bear with me on this one. If you have a small dog, relax on the coach or bed, and place them on your stomach. The body weight and warmth is better than a heating pad, and you can't beat the unconditional love.
well play basketball and run track and to help my cramps is that i drink pure cranberry juice it works like a charm every time
This might sound a little gross, but masturbation works the best after taking some Midol. Preferably not with your hand, a vibrating back massage will do the trick. It works like a charm and will definitely relax you enough to put you to sleep.
This might sound crazy..i read in a magazine once that for cramps, if you do a few very simple yoga poses, it will ease your cramps.
I don't do yoga, but i tried the ones it said to, and to my astonishment, it really did work!
i'm also a fan of those heat patches! i use them at work all the time!
My boyfriend recently got me a back massager and I'm actually having a terrible cramp right now, I got the back massager and put it on my belly, it eases it like a charm. ^^ note however it's an electric, vibrating back massager I can't vouch for a hand operated one.
Bananas are great for cramps!
This works great for me now read carefully.
First of all you need to have a full belly eat a good balanced meal. No fruits or orange juice acid taste in food... (ect) drink soda or gingeale with food I prefer cocacola or pepsi no orange soda or 7up or anything like that. Then take 2 pain relieving pills right after meal. Fill up a plastic 2 litter bottle with hot water and wrap a small towel around it. Lay down comfortably entertained to keep your mind off the pain and place the hot bottle on your lower belly. Your cramps should feel way lighter now. Keep eating bread (whole wheat if your watching ur weight) and no cheese or lemon or oranges. I suggest bananas and penut butter sandwhich and drink soda. And keep the bottle on ur belly. Its the best way.
Those ThermaCare things are amazing: a portable heating pad you can wear around all day long! I use the large back one as well. Sometimes, I use two - one on front and one on lower back. wow
Drink 100 Plus or Isotonic drinks will prevent cramps, especially before exercising or before bed.
this ones a bit freaky but it worked for me.Ive suffered excruciating cramps at night in my feet and calves, nothing worked at all and believe me i tried everything. An old wives tale i heard and i know not where said '' turn your slippers over before going to bed'', I've done this for the last two weeks and NO cramps. Now how does that work?
