Rita, Is your husband drinking a lot of fluids. He needs to because dehydration can cause muscle cramps. He probably needs a muscle relaxer - have you talked with his doctor about it. I also get muscle crams. I take Baclofen (muscle relaxer) at bedtime and I use Theraworks (over the counter). It helps to put it on especially when he is having a cramp, it makes it loosen. Hope this helps! Love, Marcia 🌼🌸🌻

Wow. I like Annette's response about the mustard and water. They use that for athletes too.

Old time remedy. Worth trying , right.

Happy new day ☺️
