That said, I love some cold pickles on a hot summer day.

Anyway, if you experience frequent cramps, you might want to check that with a doctor, there might be other, more serious, underlying health issues at work there.

some more info on cramps:

I'd suggest you read up on studies involving pickle juice and vinegar as they relate to cramping.
