What is the freaking deal!?! So last night, I’m sleeping the sleep of the dead, or the just really tired, when out of a dead sleep, I wake up with the muscle spasm of all muscle spasms. My right calf muscle is in a tight painful clench and my right foot is pointing out like a fricken’ ballet dancer. I leap out of bed, scaring my wife almost to death, and I hit the floor while trying to knead the muscle into some form of submission.I don’t know if it’s because I was still half asleep or what, but when I grabbed my calf, it felt like it was twisted into, I don’t know, (I’m not going to say “pretzel”) but it was seriously deformed.
So this morning, my calf feels like it’s been through a Ragnar while some big beefy guy puched it a couple of times.Has this happened to anyone else? It seems to happen more and more the older I get.
What can I do to make it stop?
