pulled muscle in sleep, can barely walk watch

    So as the title. I woke up about 4am thursday night to a huge pain in my upper calf near the back of my knee. It was probably about a 9/10 pain, it was just incredible. I couldn't move my leg at all and so lay there trying to move to try and get rid of the pain. After about 2 or 3 minutes the intense pain passed and left a bad but not really bad pain in my leg there.

    Yesterday and today I can barely walk as it hurts so much to move my lower leg. This is actually the 3rd time this has happened in the past 4 months or so. Exactly the same every time. I need to know how to stop it happening because the pain is so intense and it's a huge inconvenience having to hobble everywhere. Before these 3 times this has never happened before in my life. As far as I can tell, nothing has changed.

    What can I do?

    You may not have pulled a muscle. You may actually be having trouble with your sciatic nerve. It can be very very painful; I know what it's like. You need to keep using your leg, even if it is sore. A day or so of rest is okay, but any more than that and you won't be helping it. See your doctor and see what they suggest. I wish you the best!

    Go to your GP and explain the situation.

    Sometimes this happens to me and I like "dislocate" my calf muscle, but it's really just cramps...

    I get this too- I haven't spoke to my dr about it but I've found its when I haven't drank enough water that day, try drinking lucozade sport or something that's high in vitamins/ supplements- I think this is what you may have:
