    mate i suffered with this real bad for weeks. Drink lots of water that helped me. i drink 2 cups of water every break and sit at home and normaly drink about 2 ltrs when i am watching tv.

    i herd the other thing that is good is tonic water never tryed it myself so cant coment.

    the other thing could be lack of salt.

    try the water thing frist tho.

    Yep, water, salt (or electrolytes) and/or lack of oxygen to the extremities.
