When I was a teenager and a young adult, I suffered from nighttime leg cramps in my calves- I would stretch in my sleep and bam! Ow! This happened many times, was a regular occurrence. Eventually it went away and hasn’t happened in several years.
Last night it happened, but in my thigh. I was in the process of turning from one side to the other in my sleep and bam! Ow! I thought I might be dying for about 2.7 seconds, but then it went away, leaving just a residual soreness throughout today.
The only changes recently have been I’ve started taking St. John’s wort, and I’m pretty sure my thyroid is low, but I have been taking a lot of vitamin D to somewhat stave that off until I can get to a doctor.
How weird is this? I hope it’s a fluke- I will be anxious about turning over for a while now. So painful. Ow.
Am I the only one or has this happened to you?
