So now you know you need more than the 40 ounces.

OK, I learned my lesson! I'm estimating I had about 40 oz yesterday. After about 4 hours sleep, the leg cramps started, off and on, for the rest of the night. At one point I got up and had a glass of OJ mixed with tonic water. I know I was low on fluids and potassium, since I soaked the bed again with sweating. Today was my last day on the prednisone and that seems to make me boil over. I'm wiped out today, and may take a nap later. On days that I get a lot of water, I don't get the leg cramps. Today, I'm really making an effort to chug it on down. I have my glass for home and my water bottle for when I go out, so I'm ready.
