I get really severe Charlie horses mostly in my calves,toes and in the back of my thighs. These are mostly at night but can happen any time of day and can be very brief or can last quite a while and be very sore for a few days
I am not sure if what I get is Charlie horse pain, but I get some sort of crushing pain in my lower legs. It is usually in the front part of my legs below the knee. I can't remember what it's called(front part of the calf)
Yes. I do. It's not too often but once in a while, usually while sitting watching TV or riding in the car, I'll get a charlie horse in my calf or in my thigh. They're very uncomfortable but usually they don't last long. 30 seconds or so then it gradually goes away over 5-10 minutes.
I never knew if it was MD related or not. I mentioned to my doctor who said it's possible, but healthy people get them too so it's hard to say. Some MDs do cause contractures which is uncontrolled tightening of the muscle but that's more of an all-the-time thing.
I get them a lot, but not as bad as before I medicated. My Neurologist prescribed Quinine Sulphate 200mg. Bid. if you can't get that, it is actually in club soda (read the label). In some Canadian provinces you don't need a prescription. Hope that helps

Hi all... Other than Charlie horses, does anyone experience numbness in the hands and legs(thighs down to feet)?
My neurologist explained that the numbness is my hands are due to Capal tunnel syndrome(CTS) but will be confirming in my next EMG appt. But he couldn't really explain the numbness in my legs especially in the outer thigh as it is pretty rare for one to feels numbness at that area. He thought it could b Meralgia paraesthetica.
I would like to know if such syndromes or numbness is common to us? It is quite a pain when it could last the whole day and in the night.
