Senior from Salem, S.
So I will try it.What Happens? Went online and found the soap cure, tried it and it didn't work. I also had hip pain when I started the soap, which the Dr said was sciatica, and it no longer bothers me.
WORKS - I have been doing the bar of soap trick for over two years. Potassium is important in nerve function and in influencing osmotic balance between cells and the interstitiual fluid.
I have tried many home remedies, and this is the first that is absolutely effective! I was homing in on a sciatic problem, but never could understand all the fatigue in my feet and legs--just accepted that this was part of it. Quinine is readily available in the grocery store--tonic water contains it, and solves my leg cramps.
Now, i don't have backache anymore and i can bend backwards like a ballet dancer. Every test was done, and the result was that it was none of the illnesses they suspected, but possibly a reaction to the quinine in that little tablet that caused the symptom.
So far I have not found a doctor that can tell me why, but I sure tell everyone to read about it in your column. I read about the Ivory soap, tried it and I have not had a leg cramp since.
So I thought, "What do I have to lose trying? I talked to my family doctor about the RLS and told him about the soap.
I got through the first night without midnight stretches and pressure point relief. No more neck pain. My wife suffers from RLS and this will be her next trial remedy.
I put a bar of ivory soap under the bottom sheet I used a small piece of soap about the size of a business card and thick as a pencil. I was told about the soap and I only have leg craps about once every three months now.
She waited a few weeks I had forgotten all about it , slipped it in there, and I still suffered from leg cramps. Last night a cramp started but he swears it stopped instantly when he rolled over and his knee touched the soap.
My husband has not had a leg cramp since, we do not know why this works but it has. Magnesium is cheap and safe, but apparently will give you diarrhea if you take a lot at once.
Anything is better than that pain. I am also on Requip medication and there is now an FDA approved generic drug called Ropinirole which is manufactured by 3 pharmaceutical companies.
I am 83 yrs old. Some I could stretch out by just jumping out of bed and pushing my heels down while leaning over.
After using this remedy for over a year, I won't go to bed without a small bar of soap under the sheets. It also slows deep tendon reflexes.
qlipe.com-piccrm | September 15, AM. I have suffered from RLS for 50 years, I am 75, and it is getting worse, even with medication. Thanks to all who wrote about their experiences, Without your comments I would not have even tried it because it sounds so silly.
I am still in shock that this really works I do change it periodically.
I haven't had a leg cramp in over two years except for the one time we vacationed without the pillow and on the third night I got a cramp. After reading this and trying it my son immediately stopped!
I just toss them under my covers and it works almost immediately for me. I think that touching or being near the positively charged bar of soap cancels out the negatively charged pain, etc.
I even put small used pieces in my bra. So I went online and found this site and others.
My husband, a very analytical type, said: With time and experimentation, I learned that I don't need a full size bar of soap love those flat hotel soaps! I am using the bar of soap and it has stopped leg cramps.
I have also had trouble, sometimes debilitating, with neck muscle cramps, so I rubbed them too. Well, let me assure any and everyone! Then I read to put the bar of soap under my sheets. I popped it under the sheet just as is and within 5 minutes, no more problem.
