Here's something worth a try.
I've been tortured by excruciating, intractable leg cramps (charlie horses, if you will) for years. They keep me up all night sometimes.
I'm a plaquenil resister, but I've found that tonic water helps. It contains just a wee bit of quinine, supposedly not enough to make a difference, but somehow it has helped me.
I drink a can of tonic water every night with lots of ice and lemon wedges. Yummy! And it's been weeks since I spent the night waking up every hour or so with cramps. Yay
Often she hid at the sight of wild beasts,
forgetting what she was; and, though
herself a bear, shuddered at sight of other bears.
