Does Anyone Else Get Charlie Horses In Their Stomach???

Does Anyone Else Get Charlie Horses In Their Stomach???

I've been getting charlie horses (muscle cramps) in my stomach and they are BRUTAL. I'm get them in my legs and feet but now my stomach. I bent over to pick up my lap top from the floor and I got a cramp so bad I thought I was going to throw up. It took forever to work it out. You could feel the bulge of muscles in my stomach. Anyone else get cramps in unusual places?

I get them all over, but for me the worst are in my feet, back of thigh, and bicep.

For the past 4 days I've been getting full body spasms. Feels just like a Charlie horse but everywhere. It's debilitating! I see my rheumatologist tomorrow and I hope he can help. I can't live like this. The only thing that's helped even alittle has been muscle relaxers. The problem is I can function on them and sleep most the day until they wear off and the spasms start again.

Well that explains the horrible spasms I use to get in my shoulder blades. That pain was just horrible. A few years back I woke up one morning with horrible pain in my abdomen. My husband had to take me to the ER. I think they thought I was just seeking pain meds. Well I was but not in that way. They did a CT scan and did not find anything wrong. In the mean time, I started having esophageal spasms. That was a double shot of major pain. It finally subsided. I think you have shown me what was actually happening to me that day. Thanks for sharing

I have found that Hyland's Leg Cramp pills do the trick. Accidentally bought quick-dissolving under-the-tongue kind but it works really well. there is quinine in it. My charlie horses happen in my fee and up my shins (ow!). My limbs hyperextend causing it a lot and making it more difficult to grow muscle. Not sure of what to say about specific pain cuz I am a hurting unit all over. Thanks folks for your ideas.
