Neurogenic Muscle Tetany (contractions)

Hi Sunny, are these anything like charley horses? My mother has had bad bouts of them at times. She will often stretch her leg muscles as she stands against a wall just before retiring to bed. I think she also drinks quinine and has at least tried going to bed with bar of soap. Don't think the soap thing worked though. Not familiar with any other tricks. Best, Hank

HI Hank, these contractions are brutal. They last a long time. A very long time. Like about 11:00pm until about 10:30 AM this morning. So each time I tried to go back to bed, they started again. I got about 2.5 hours of interrupted sleep. I don't think they use quinine anymore for quite some time. What is a bar of soap meaning? Thanks for asking. Stretching ahead of time doesn't help. Take care and have a nice weekend, Sunny
