Is there anything I can do / take - it is almost as bad as childbirth!!!

I heard eating bananas help due to potassium also tonic water???? Don't know what they do but they work. I used to get it in my toes and calves and eating a banana b4 bed seemed to do the trick

Thanks - i'll try anything!
The tonic water rings a bell as well!

have just googled and it says not to use tonic water as it contains something called quinine??? whic is a muscle relaxant, how pg are you?

I'm 24 weeks - I wasn't sure about quinine - if it's safe or not - I've never seen anything saying it's not.

Thought I'd let you know - in case anyone else read this looking for a cure -I have tried eating bananas before bed for the last 2 nights and it does seemed to have helped - Thanks!

Somebody suggested ready salted crisps to me for the salt content. The pain after my cramp lasted for nearly a week!
