If I go on a junk food binge for too long I'll sometimes wake up in the middle of the night with a horrible cramp in my calf - it will spasm and
tighten until I almost want to scream for help but I learned a trick from my boss, who was in the military and got these all the time....he told me
that the next time it happened I should put all my effort into standing up and although it would hurt like hell, to put all my weight on the heel of
the cramped leg and push down....works like a charm
