Leg Cramps...why do they hurt SO much?

  • Print

I woke up this morning after the committing the capital crime of stretching in bed.  It must be a capital crime because it resulted in pain so severe, it can only be described as torture! I understand that their are people battling cancer, ALS,CF, CCA, MS, MD  and many other horrible illnesses...but how is it that such a seemingly minor thing as a leg cramp results in such horrific pain? I looked up "leg cramps" on webMD and found that doctors do not know what causes them. Okay....so what do I do as I am trying to walk it off...same website says the cramps may be connected to dehydration and flat feet.  At midnight last night I determined I was suffering from both. I guzzled a glass and a half of water and went back to bed and made my husband promise if I got another cramp he would go and get my tennis shoes from the closet and slap them on my feet to create arches...then I laid awake for the next hour, not daring to move a muscle, for fear of bringing on another cramp. I finally fell asleep about 1:30...geez, I am tired today.
