I've done some stick, but not a lot. I pull, like with a MIG.

WOC, is there ANY fast and effective way to relieve a leg cramp? I take potassium pills when I've been working outdoors and think a cramp may visit later, but sometimes they hit anyway (like just now), and honestly, it feels as bad as getting whacked in the nuts.

Drink a lot of water Buck. Dehydration causes cramping too.

I believe Vitamin A helps with muscle cramps, I eat mandarin oranges when my stomach starts to cramp, helps me. I prefer to get my vitamins and minerals naturally and not in synthetic form, but hey that's just me.

These girls know what they are saying. Dehydration gives me leg cramps and headaches. Go natural in food and medicine.

My back has been hurting for a few weeks now, and it varies in intensity. The main point of pain is just to the right (my right) of the base of the spine. It's not a constant pain, it comes and goes according to my movements. I haven't done any heavy lifting lately, so I don't know what caused this. Any ideas?
