    JD, you probably had double the recommended amount of salt per day for an adult in the couple beers you drank to rehydrate yourself. They do say that coca cola is better to drink to rehydrate yourself rather than water, as it contains sugar and salt that the body needs.

    Anyone else remember having a salt bowl and spoon on the table?

    Lift a large amount of salt out, put it on the edge of your plate and dip every mouthful of food into it. Those were the days! :good:

    Years ago I couldn’t eat food without adding salt, habit I suppose, I now don’t add it when cooking and only use it in small amounts on certain food. I use a lot of peppercorns and grind them on to most meals.

    That’s interesting, Seabadger, does it help as you keep pushing it out of the way, so it keeps your leg( s) moving to a certain extent? :unsure:

    No, BE never had one of those!

    I do use a very small amount in cooking but mostly everything gets a liberal amount of Turmeric and ground black pepper! (Even scrambled egg!)

    That’s interesting about the cork Seabadger, thank you for that, I’ll pass that information on to my daughter, it’s well worth a try!

    Best to take it out of the bottle and drink the contents first, works for me.  :good:

    You CANNOT eat scrambled eggs without black pepper on them! Turmeric I’ve never used. However, will buy some and try it out.

    The posh salt bowls were made of silver and has glass inserts so that the salt didn’t corrode the silver.

    I’ve no idea why the cork works. May be Tigre is on the right lines in that your sub-conscious knows there is a foreign object in the bed and this effects sgnals to the muscles in some way?

    Should read “signals” of course and should read before posting of course.

    @seabadger my Granny told me the same thing, she always went to bed holding a cork in her hand to ward off cramp. When I was about 7 I was staying with them and got cramp so she told me to do that, I kept dropping the cork as I fell asleep so she put a pair of my Grandpa’s socks over my hands to keep them in place, it worked! No idea why but it did.

    I take Magnesium now and if I have a run of not taking it then cramps start again. A cup of hot marmite is good for replacing lost salts, particularly if you have a hangover :whistle:

    May be a cork bracelet could be the answer, there seems a lot of choice if you google ‘ cork bracelets’.
