I woke up this morning and felt a small "knot" in my calf muscle. I go to rub it and it pulls so bad and gives me this huge pain, like that calf muscle is just getting twisted like spaghetti noodles with a fork. Now I have had a small cramp here and there but this was more painful and when it felt like it was gone, I went to stand up and when I put my foot all the way down it pulled tight again. Been 5 minutes of massaging it and it still won't relax.

You guys know what it is or what I could do to help it?

Mate I used to get exactly this a lot when I kayaked.
Happened once during a race and completely messed me up.
Try touching your toes (standing) without bending your knees to stretch the muscle
Also try put one foot in front of the other (Beatles' Abbey Road style) and bending your front knee, then try to walk normally.
It'll heal with time but its bladdy painful when you first get it i know!

you either grew a vagina, or you are about to.
It's over simplified, So what!

I wake up very rarely with something just like that. Hurts like all hell. It usually just goes away on its own.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Happens all the time. Once i was taking my shoes off and my calf became a rusty chainsaw.
Needless to say I curled up at the foot of the stairs like a real man until it had passed.

It's poop that got lost along the way and ended up in your calf.

The stretching things mentioned above work - but sometimes it means you need to drink more water during the day.
Also - quinine water, or believe it or not - straight vinegar (ounce or so) will usually give quick relief when done with the stretching or even just walking around ...if you can stand it.

Advice from an old dude with many of the same cramps over the years.

Its deep vein thrombosis. You need to get to a hospital NOW.


But srsly: Its probably just a cramp. Do this:

Except use pickle juice instead of vinegar. Its essentially the same thing, but its a thousand times easier to drink.

you're probably just pregnant or something. no big deal.

also, you're not supposed to ask for medical help in the pit.
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.
