Just wanted to know if any one else who has Psoratic Arthritis or any other Arthritis ever gets Charlie Horses in their Legs  It's soo painful the last time I got a Charlie Horse that I remember I was Pregnant. I am also taking Remicade Infussions and Methotrexate and Prednisone. Thanks PR Glo

PR try eating some bananas for some additional potassium. It helps me w/charley horses. I get them on my upper leg and in the thigh area. You haven't lived till ya get one on your inner thigh,lol. That pain I can't describe. Susie
