Thread Name: Cramps in chord hand
Subject: RE: Cramps in chord hand
Two things help with my cramps.

1) Quninine - you can get quinine tablets from some chemists - but the easiest way is Tonic Water - a Gin and Tonic has two relaxants...

2) Acetosalicylic acid - Aspirin - 'dilutes the blood' inteh flok parlance, but it does assist the circulation. Only small quantities - less than a tablet a day about 100 Mg at most is necessary to achieve the effect. When my hands were feeling 'slow' a dose of this an hour or so beforehand would asist in 'loosening up' the hands to ripple on the accordion.
