Woke up today to the most horrible leg cramp ever, it hurt so bad. My calf still hurts even 30 minutes after. Why does this happen. I know its common in about 50% of women, but why. And around what month did you experience this awful symptom..
Quoting Karen. Hernandez:" I can still feel the cramp its just been there all day waiting to get me when i least expect it.. grrr it hurts"
Try pulling your toes up towards the top of your foot, instead of stretching your toes out and pointing them. Do this multiple times, it can actually stop you from cramping. Also, doing this WHILE you are having a cramp can make it stop. Getting up and walking helps also.
