0315: Cramp in approx mid-point of my left, outer calf. Scale of severity/pain about 3-4 out of 10, so not too painful, but lasted about 7-8 minutes. I applied some Absorbine Jr, which had zero immediate effect, but maybe helped relax the muscle after a few minutes. Did not have to get out of bed, though. This was first cramp in about 3 weeks. I’ve been wearing both lower leg/foot and thigh compression daily. I cut out all potassium and magnesium supplements about 2 weeks ago. Although, I bought two bottles of magnesium lotion, one water based the other oil based, and my wife applies one or the other 3-4 times per week at bed time. I also soaked in a tub of hot water saturated with epsom salts one night. I also, usually although not every night, apply Absorbine Jr to my inner thighs.
