So the muscles in my feet, calves and hands have been contracting lately, and it hurts an insane amount when it happens. It normally happens in my feet, and a year or two ago, it would just happen occasionally. but now its happening about everyday. it just happened again and the muscles contracted so much my toes where bent towards the bottom of my foot. as soon as it happened, i screamed and my body pulled itself in and i couldn't move, i could barely breath. i was lying on my bed speechless praying for it to end. the last time it happened in my calf muscle, i was literally paralized from the pain. i could not move or speak, and i was just trying to keep breathing. each time it would contract more i'd gasp, but i couldn't make any noise. i really want to know what is causing these muscle contractions because they really hurt and i would like them to stop happening. any ideas? thanks.
