    I got a cramp in my calf while sleeping

    Last night I jumped out of bed screaming in the middle of the night with a bad cramp in my calf. It hurt like hell so I tried to stand up and put tension on it to make it stop... that is what I heard. Anyway what causes cramps to happen in the middle of the night while sleeping and more important what stops them from happening??

    I had that happen often when I was pregnant. I also had it happen once when I was not pregnant and my calf was sore for days. I sympathize with you.

    These happen to me as well. I have been told to stay still and hold your nose and breathe deeply through your mouth. Believe it or not, this seems to work very well and the pain eases. The calf is usually sore the rest of the day but I'll take that anyday over the excrutiating pain of the cramp. Bill

    The cramps happen at night because in your sleep you over stretch your legs and the muscle reacts by continuing the extension of the muscle. While you are awake you are consious of the response so you do not over stretch to cause a cramp.

    I am with PROT on this one. I had the same thing happen to me on a few occasions. My situation was that I drink around 2 to 3 gallons of water a day. With that much water I was depleting my body of electrolytes and minerals. It kind of feels like your muscle it being buckled and is very painful. Nothing like waking up in the middle of the night from a dead sleep with your calf locking up. I usually make sure to drink a 32 oz Gatorade every day and that seems to have made it go away.

    I am with Chipman on this one.

    I got the night cramps while ago when I was young and drinking more water definitely helps.

    Banana a day keeps the cramps away!

    I used to get those on occasion. Hate them! Seriously, I really do eat a banana everyday and drink lots of water.

    Yup... I have only had them a few times but always when I am only half awake and have stretched my leg. I hate when that happens! The pain can follow you around all day on the really bad ones.

    Yep, the Banana a day is a good preventative but if you do happen to have a calf cramp there is an easy fix. Most of the time it forces the foot down as though you are standing on your toes. If you have a foot board or bed post at the foot of the bed then place the ball of your foot against the bed post or foot board and force the foot towards the calf oposite of the way the cramp is moving the foot. It will eas the pain and stop the cramp. If there is no bed post or foot board then use the other foot to force the offending foot against the direction of the cramp. I get them often when I train in Krav Maga as it is alot of foot work and have learned to deal with them when they happen.

    I used to get them frequently, but ONLY when I had been drinking HARD the night before.
    Definitley a hydration issue for me.

    I had a hamstring cramp one time. Talk about freaking out the wife while I'm rolling around on the floor groaning!

    yes on the potassium. Can't think of a much more crippling excruciating pain. Try getting a cramp in each calf! Best thing is to get the h*** out of bed as FAST as you can and stand up & try to move around even if you're holding onto the wall.

    They say pain is the body's way of telling us something is wrong; but c'MON! the body must think we're total dimwits.

    From experience I know if I,ve sweated a lot during the day, first I get hand cramps (fingers sorta lock up) then if I don,t drink a couple of pints of milk or water, I'll wake up with cramp in the calves.

    Potassium

    Banana will work. Or a little gatorade. It has potassium and electrolytes. I prefer the gatorade approach as I don't care for bananas at all.

    I got them on occasions...potassium's low...a banana or potassium loaded food/drink is a sure fix.

    I use to get these as well (way back when I was going through Basic Training). Like others, I believe it's due to not drinking enough water.

    If you get it again, flex your calf...it's going to hurt like a SOB, but it will make it go away.

    When you get a calf cramp, sit up in bed, lean forward and, with your heel down and your toes pointing to the ceiling, grasp the top of your foot with both hands and gently pull back. This will uncramp the calf muscle.

    I love being woken up out of a sound sleep by a calf cramp. Yeoww!

    I used to suffer with these a lot, as the guys said tho dehydration is the main factor.

    My Doc gave me the best cure for this EVER! if it happens in the middle of the night hop to a cold floor and put the painful legs' foot right down on it. This shocks the muscle into relaxing and problem is sorted!!!

    The pain may last a little longer, but in by no means feels like they are ripping apart. Hope that helps you guys when ya get one in future!

    Are you saying that you think Bagelluvr might be pregnant?

Anyway what causes cramps to happen in the middle of the night while sleeping and more important what stops them from happening??
    I played football in high school. I remember the night after a game, about 2 am I woke up with the worse hamstring cramp of all time. I couldn't move. I started to scream and no one in my family heard me. I grabbed my phone and called my friend and told him to call back a.s.a.p.... a few moment later he called back and I waited for someone else to pick up the phone then I got on it and had them come to my room with an ice pack and to help me straighten my leg.

    That's how I picture Hell... an eternity of hamstring cramps.

    But in agreement, I believe I was dehydrated and I pounded a bottle of Gatorade to get me through the night.
