Calf cramps.....severe

Over that last 5 months (on 3 different occasions) I have woke up in the middle of the night with severe, debilitating left calf cramp.

The pain was worse than any cramp I have experienced during the tail end of a marathon. The pain was very severe.

The cramp would last in upwards to 30 seconds..but it seemed much longer.

The pain would linger....and I would hardly be able to go back to sleep awaiting another cramp.

The next day my calf would be very sore to the point that I would be limping around...it took almost a week to get over it...

The same thing happened early this past week.....the only difference was I recovered within a couple of days....

Has anyone experienced this?

Tim,
Ardmore, OK.
