Stupid leg cramp

Have you ever had a cramp on you calf while you are sleeping? Aku pernah. Tadi pagi masa aku bangun tidur. It was the worst feeling someone could ever get, especially when you are sleeping. I was sleeping! I mean, if I was jogging, tantu jua! If aku kana bubut anjing tantu jua. Ani masa tidur wah kaki ku te-krem ah! How much more random can that get? Imagine kamu shopping di kadai sekali tarus-tarus kana tampar. That's exactly the same thing. Well, maybe not exactly, but you get what I mean.

That was not the first time it happened. The same thing happened last year. The stupid calf cramp woke me up and I screamed my ass off. Inda pulang batah sakitnya. I just couldn't move for a couple of minutes and it hurt really bad. Macam kan putus wah urat kaki ah rasanya. Sumpah! Inda ku bedusta.

Sekali kan becerita tah ku arah house mate ku how kaki ku te-krem masa tidur.

"Kaki ku krem wah tadi masa tidur."
"Eh iakah? Cemana bulih atu?"
"Antah, inda ku tau kenapa. Sakit ah, sampai teriak-teriak ku jua."
"Aah pasal kesakitan tah kau teriak-teriak atu."
"Oh, tedangar kau rupanya. Aku atu mengarik kamu."
"Mana ku tau. Pikir ku kau menyanyi labang-labang wah. Kau jua selalu labang-labang menyanyi dapan laptop mu."

A leg cramp is a pain that comes from a muscle in the leg. It is due to a muscle spasm which is when a muscle contracts too hard. It usually occurs in one of the calf muscles, below and behind a knee. The small muscles of the feet are sometimes affected.

A cramp pain typically lasts a few minutes. In some cases it lasts just seconds, but in some cases it can last up to 10 minutes. The severity of the pain varies. The muscle may remain tender for up to 24 hours after a leg cramp. Leg cramps usually occur when you are resting - most commonly at night when in bed. They may wake you from sleep. It can become a distressing condition if your sleep is regularly disturbed. These leg cramps are more common in older people.

So it commonly happens to older people. I'M ONLY TWENTY! Aku baru jua dua puluh tahun umurku. Eh mengalih ku eh. Berehat ku dulu. Bye.

I have leg cramps all the time too. Not I'm not old. 23. My know-it-all friend says it's because of stress. And you know what .. I'm kind of happy with that explanation. Sort of. =)

jirin, satu pasal too much masin in ur body. hahaha! bida eh bunyinya but yeah, thats the truth. 2ndly, u could try not to that a shower during the nite, insyaAlah it would help.

nite shower is not good for the body esp those yg malar cramp kaki mcm aku. but now alhamdulillah in good. drink more water at least a big bottle of water a day. u'll get use to it if u practice =)
