    Hi,
    I got a horrible charlie horse in my left calf 4 nights ago.The spasm lasted for a few minutes but the calf felt tender for most of the next day then slowly started to feel better.I then got another one 2 nights ago and my calf still is tender. It really hurts climbing the stairs.Is this normal?Can the calf hurt for a few days? This is a new symptom for me.
    Thanks,
    Dawn

    Thanks for the reply!
    I'm not sure if my potassium level is normal, but I do know that have bad anemia right now.I think I'll go have a banana now!.Thanks for the welcome.It's very reassuring to know there are others experiencing what I am going through.My husband is supportive but he still doesn't get that some days I can feel like the old me and somedays it's all I can do to get out of bed.I've only been diagnosed for a little over a year so it's still a learning process for both of us.
