[ExI] discovery

Nobody has any explanation for the soap, but thousands have written in
about it.  Direct application of the soap to the leg doesn't work.  I think
maybe that it is fumes coming out of the soap and concentrating under the
covers.  Just a guess.  If I forget it I get cramps sometimes; get out of
bed, find the soap, put it in place, and bingo no cramps.  Who knows?
