Just recently I’ve been getting Charley Horses in bed and leg and foot cramps when I exercise (another getting older syndrome?) … anyway, I saw this letter in The New York Times from someone who said they’ve solved that very problem. Pat Sheffield from New Jersey said “I tried … Gatorade … potassium tablets … ate bananas … then, someone I met said to try magnesium, so I bought magnesium oxide over the counter. I have taken that for five months and have not had one Charley Horse since.”
I’ve asked doctors, physical therapists and exercise trainers for a remedy and no one seems to have a solution.
My question: Has anyone else tried magnesium oxide? Did this (or something else) work?
