I had a bad case of the stomach cramps this evening. I had been sweating a lot this day and not drinking enough water. My salt intake is also on the decrease and therefore I’m not sure if I’m able to manage. I’ve had these cramps once in a while and each time I notice that I wouldn’t have drunk enough water for a day or two.
The problem with getting the cramps is that sometimes you are in a difficult position and in public and hence are not comfortable to show the pain in public. I was trying to get into a van this evening on the way home when I got mine. It’s worse then when you get a cramp in the leg, and so I had to get out and walk for a few minutes and then get a bottle of water. I drank atleast a half bottle and then waited for a bit while walking about.
I then alerted the Admin team and asked to be put in a different cab as the one I was due to go in had already left. 5 more minutes later I was in a car and headed on my way home, the cramp having eased but still on my mind.
