What is a "Rans"?


Tom,

As I said years ago, for you it's always been:

Really anal-retentive nazi speller

Enjoy,

Take anything (e.g., calcium) for the leg cramps?



You take potassium for leg cramps....not calcium. Bananas are a great
source of potassium. I take a potassium supplement daily and it has
eliminated 99% of the leg cramps in all situations.

I get leg cramps from heat in the summer, and quinine tablets and vitamin
E seems to ease them.

Be careful with quinine. I got my MD to give me a scrip for quinine tabs,
and I carry one in my bike gear in case of a massive leg cramp. My wife
takes a quinine based med and a listed side affect is BLINDNESS. If you take
quinine frequently, check with your physician. I have also found that ,
since my blood pressure is OK, adding some salt to my food has helped to
eliminate leg cramps. More training rides have helped too.YMMV
