My legs are so sore from leg cramps at night and my hands also. There are not many meds I can take as I have a very bad stomach, and tons of allergies. I tried Biofreeze rub, ice pack, and heat with no results. I need help. I can't take meds that cause blurred vision as I only have one eye.

I too suffer bad night cramps. I tried the the vitamin magnesium and vitamin do. Although the have not completely gone, it has helped.
My Dr. says to drink more water daily. It has helped.
What has seemed to help rid of legs of cramps is riding my recumbent bike.
There are literally thousands of people who swear by vinegar.
Try drinking Tonic Water. Regular tonic water or diet, they work equally well. Take about 1/2 cup before going to bed, or you can take a sip when the leg cramps start. A doctor recommended this to a friend of mine and it works for both of us.
Try taking a calcium supplement with magnesium at night. And for a quick remedy for the cramps is drink dill pickle vinegar. It will stop the cramp in less than 3 mins. But the calcium is your best bet for long term.
