Charlie Horses
    #4641083 - 09/10/05 09:17 AM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Today I was awoken by a delightful searing pain in my left leg.  I

honestly thought my leg was going to tear in half.  I don't get

charlie horses often, but when I do, they suck.  I didn't know what

to do to get rid of the pain so I just stretched my leg out and tried

not to scream.  Anyone else get charlie horses?  Is there a way to

prevent them?  Football players around here tell me to drink water

and eat potatoes.


Thoughts?  :grin: :thumbup: :heart:

Stand up on them. That almost always gets rid of them (it has never failed for me). I find myself standing up in my bed at all hours of the morning more than one would think!




The first one I ever got almost made me scream in pain. I had no idea what it was, and I could barely walk the next day for about an hour. It actually occurred the day I went rock climbing the first time.

standing on your leg does work... but take vitamin E at nite or in the morning, or eat foods higher in Vitamin E..it helps with the muscles.

i think charlie horses are a phenomenon stricking unsuspecting sleepers for centuries.

Same here!! Never had one while awake. Always at night, I find myself flying out of bed and hobbling around until it subsides. Those things suck balls!
I broke my leg in a snowmobile wreck about 28 years ago, and I get those suckers in that leg about 4 or 5 times a year. (which is 4 or 5 too many..)

Drinking water is the best prevention technique. I once had a soccer tournament after a night of drinking...bad idea. I got a charlie horse in one leg when i was at full spring, barely kept my balance, then the other leg goes. Fell flat on my face on a break away, all hungover, what a funny day.
