    Thanks so much for this information ChristinS.. I will start on the magnesium right away and up my potassium with the proper foods. I was recently put on medication for Diabetes which may be affecting my magnesium levels. Thanks again.

    I'll give magnesium a try for sure. Interesting to learn that as we age, this mineral is necessary for metabolism. And thanks so much for the links. I appreciate this help.

    You had me 'cracking up'! There's nothing like a little humor to divert the mind from pain. And I'm going to up my water along with some gatorade for electrolyte balance. Thanks and sure hope your recovery is a speedy one.

    Hello beautiful Audrey.....Muscle spasms can be so annoying and uncomfortable....I get them in my feet (toes). As far as I know, "quinine" is tonic water (the same liquid used for the drink "gin & tonic") unless teamrn knows of some other.
