Nearly every night I wake up with a painful muscle cramp in my leg or foot. It's like your muscle tightens up really tight and it kind of feels like a burning sensation. And then you have to tilt your toes upwards to stretch it out which causes more pain for a little bit until it finally releases and you get some relief. Last night was the worst. I woke up with extreme pain in my right calf that woke me from my sleep and lasted a little while. Now today the calf is sore and when I stretch it it feels a little painful. I know this is a pregnancy symptom and I try to take the dog out for a walk every morning and night before bed to stretch out my legs. I am prone to restless leg syndrome at night but this is not only irritating but painful. I hope it stops soon!
Anyone else suffering from this?
