I am a type 1 diabetic and have suffered severe leg, chest, neck and back cramps since I was 6. I take diet Quine tonic water with splenda. I use to use Kroger brand, but it has aspertane. I drink it 50-50 with diet fruit punch drinks. I also take calcium with magniesium which helps alot too. Make sure you don't take too much potassium if you have kidney problems. THis is a life saver. Neck cramps feel like someone is choking you, and having upper leg cramps for 10-20 min can and will produce pain. Waist Watchers has the splenda tonic water and I find it at Ingles supermarkets.
