Leg Cramps

“If you’ve had a charley horse, you probably know it wasn’t a comfortable ride. These spasms usually happen at night and affect your calf muscle.
The tight, knotted sensation you feel lasts several seconds to several minutes. Sometimes the pain lingers. If the cramp is severe, your muscle may be sore for days afterward.”

“I’m not terribly excited to discuss capital punishment. My personal opinions on the subject have evolved, and vacillated, in the 30 years since the girlfriend of a college buddy was murdered by a restaurant coworker.”

Fluid And Electrolyte Balance

“Electrolytes are minerals in your body that have an electric charge. They are in your blood, urine and body fluids.

You get them from the foods you eat and the fluids you drink.”
