Here's one for y'all.... I (used to) suffer cramp quite a bit. It varies from the all over body type (near death experience) to the odd finger / toe / twinge. I'd tried attending to various things to overcome it but to no avail. Recently, during a casual conversation with my father, I stated that I could understand getting it following excessive physical demands but thought it a little unfair to get it after a good nights sleep, just before getting out of bed. He stated that my mom had similar problems and had been told of an old wives tale regarding putting cork in the bed. Apparently it worked for her. Well, never being one to miss out trying the ridiculous, I tried it. Much to my suprise, not only has it worked in bed, I also haven't had anywhere near as much cramp as prior to putting the corks in my bed. In fact, as I sit here thinking about it, I can't actually remember any instance of having cramp at all in the last 3 weeks since I started with the corks. I've just got 1 in each corner of the fitted sheet on my side of the bed, 1 in my pillowcase (lowerside) and 1 on my bedside table. I've no idea at all why it's working and would be interested to hear any theories and whether or not anyone else has come across this before. I guess the next step is to take them away, 1 at a time until the cramp returns to find an optimum effective number and possibly location. If you do try this at home and have a partner who shares your bedspace, be sure to warn them firast as it could lead to some very bizarre misunderstandings ;-) cheers <hic! - ooops> Dave.
