When My Leg Cramps For No Reason At All

Updated on February 6, 2011

Unexpected Temporary Setbacks

When you wake up and you try to walk and you limp your way

Your leg cramps and causes you pain today

You shake it carefully and talk to it in a low voice so no one can hear you

When you know it worked perfectly yesterday and you never gave it a reason to question why?

You feel healthy and maybe you twisted it in your sleep

Is it possible that I could have injuried it in a nightmare that I don't remember

Maybe I was being chased and I jumped and broke it in a fall

How crazy would that be when I try to explain that to my doctor when I call

There has to be a logical explanation that I seek

Maybe my wife kicked me in my sleep and it just hurts because I am feeling the pain now when I am awake

I sit hear and try to take my mind off of my troubles

My right leg is fine my left leg is sore

I will try to stretch it some more

I am trying to think of why it is bothering me now

I walked all day yesterday and it did everything a normal leg would do

Nothing out of the ordinary

No physical strenuous feats that would cause my leg to ache

I feel like I am a hypocondriac and this is something they would fake

A pain that goes to the bottom of my leg that makes it difficult to walk

Even when I sit it hurts

My foot feels fine

I keep thinking this discomfort has to be in my mind

Go away go away please go away

I didn't do anything to you

So why are you doing this to me

If I could call you a name it would be you are a  - - n  of  a B - - !

But for now I will try some how to make you better

The day is early and I will continue to rub my leg until it is fine

Then I will be on to bigger and better things

Like teaching my cat to learn how to sing

      Darlene Sabella What good advice I can't wait till my leg cramps again to try it.It is funny when you want something to happen it never happens.It is like the leg knows.Eiddwen You are so kind.My leg cramp is gone but what is next ?I am so glad it wasn't a groin pull.How do I explain that.Don't forget when you have a leg cramp you have to come here and share.Poetvix I am so glad I could make you laugh.You took my pain away and made me laugh too.Dim Flaxenwick It is a working progress the beauty is in the beast.I just have to bring it out one meow at a time.Thanks everyone for sharing a few laughs and I just couldn't let that moment pass by without pulling someones leg.

      Iknow don't you just hate that LOL the secret is to point your heal out, not your toes, so stretch you leg out and point your heal and it will pull out. You are so funny, I don't know if you realize just how funny you can be. I love you my friend, rate up and love & peace darski
