Charlie Horse (leg cramps)

Take a few breaths and try to stay calm. (Panicking can cause you to tighten the affected muscles even further and prolong the cramp).

If cramp is in arch or calf muscles-forcefully extend your toes toward your head and hold the stretch until the cramp subsides.

If the cramp is in the back of your thick, roll out of bed, bend at the waist, supporting yourself on your forearms and keep bending forward until you feel the cramped muscles stretching out. Hold until the cramp abates.

When pain subsides, get up and walk around a bit to bring oxygen to the cramped muscles. A cold or hot pack may help.
