    Whenever I get cramps I just lay down with heating pads on the places it hurts, and drink warm tea. Helps me a lot wish you luck!

    I have the same problem, I know how awful it is. Unfortunately nothing will make them go away immediately. In my opinion Alieve is the only pain reliever that will work for my cramps. My doctor prescribed me naproxen (same ingredient) for my cramps years ago. I suggest taking two, getting a heating pad and waiting it out.
