Have you ever had the experience of jogging in the morning or just lying in the bed at night when, all of a sudden, a sharp pain hits your foot or leg. A muscle cramp, also known as charley horse is the sudden and involuntary forced contraction of a muscle.
“Muscle cramps usually occur in the calf or thigh,” explains Loren Fishman, MD, a professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at Columbia University and the medical director of Manhattan Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. But they can also happen in one’s arms, feet, or hands; and sometimes even in one’s stomach muscles or along the rib cage. “They can involve part or all of a muscle or several muscles in a group,” adds Michael Fredericson, MD, director of the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation division of Stanford University.
Muscle cramps occur mostly in leg muscles, most often in the calf. Cramps usually last for seconds to minutes. After the cramp eases, the area might be sore for hours or days. Muscle cramps can be both uncomfortable and inconvenient, often resulting in the inability to use the affected area for a short period of time. A muscle cramp can happen after working a muscle too hard or straining it or simply holding a position for a long time. Muscle cramps can come about when there is not enough blood flow. A narrowing of the arteries that bring blood to the legs can cause a cramping pain in the legs and feet during exercise. These cramps usually go away soon after exercise stops. Muscle cramps can also come about due to nerve compression. Pressure on the nerves in the spine also can cause cramping pain in the legs. The pain usually gets worse with walking. Walking bent slightly forward, such as when pushing a shopping cart, might ease cramping. Some people are much more prone to cramps when sleeping. When you are lying in bed and trying to fall asleep, suddenly your calf may cramp up. Cramping can also happen when you are lacking in some minerals. Too little potassium, calcium or magnesium in the diet can cause leg cramps. Medicines often prescribed for high blood pressure can cause increased urination, which may drain the body of these minerals. Though most muscle cramps are temporary, they can also be a symptom of more serious health conditions. These include kidney disease, Isaacs syndrome − a chronic nerve disorder, Serotonin syndrome − a rare but very serious drug reaction, and Lou Gehrig’s disease or ALS − a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and one’s physical function.
