  • You could also just buy a potassium supplement. If you eat a lot of salt it will deplete your body of potassium. It's good to balance it with your salt intake...for example, you eat 300 mgs of salt then have 300 mgs. of potassium. I do that and never get charlie horses anymore, (OUCH) but I did it more for my blood pressure than anything.

  • Oh Yes! I had one that I could actually see moving up my leg. It looked like a golf ball was under my skin.

  • OUCH! I had that during my first pregnancy. It never left a mark though. I did limp through the day.
