Spoke too soon...

Lying on the couch watching some TV last night, all of a sudden a stabbing charlie horse in the bottom of my left foot. There must be something to being in a recumbent position that triggers these things because they don't happen when I'm walking around. Anyhow, I had potatoes with my dinner, had been drinking plenty of water, and have been on the Magnesium pills, so none of that is foolproof!

I will continue to monitor this and report back.


  1. When you get these....does standing up with your feet flat on the floor resolve them?

  2. Hey Ed!

    Basically I wind up on the floor from the pain -- by the time I stand up, they're gone. :) When I get them in my calves my legs are not strong enough to stand on. On the sole of my foot, like last night, I could conceivably have stood but all I wanted to do was curl up in a fetal position and try to stretch it out.
