    Back when I was a teenager (still growing), I used to get woken up all the time by the most extraordinary pains in my legs. Went to a doctor, his explanation was 'growing pains'. His suggested remedy? Wearing football socks to bed to keep my legs warm and to encourage good circulation. I wasn't very happy with that, but it did actually work.

    When I get cramp in my calf I find the best thing to do is to stand up straight right away.

    I think I would collapse if I tried this with really bad cramp. Massaging it (or going 'ow OW ow OW FUCK' and grabbing it really hard) usually works for me.

    You'd think this, but Mike is right. Standing up gets rid of those cramps a lot faster than rolling on your bed and crying in pain.

    It seems like the wrong thing to do but it stops the cramp immediately.

    i'm glad i'm alone in the house because the pain was literally bad enough to force a scream out of me. And then I stood up and my vision got all spotty but I forced myself to walk to the kitchen for a drink of water. going from the bed to the standing position was the worst part. then it just hurt from the crazy leg trying to fucking kill me.

    Gotta get some of that Potassium goodness.

    Nah, but that happens to me a lot. Usually, I can just straighten my leg, and it kind of twinges for a minute, then it's good. I've never tried standing up right away and walking, mostly because when I wake up various random parts of my body (like, half my hand and my wrist, or my shoulders) are usually numb, thereby preventing me from getting out of bed.

    My leg cramped all the way up while I was stuck in an Obama related traffic jam a few days ago and I still can't walk on it correctly.

    during basic i would wake up in the middle of the night with the worst shin splints i could have ever imagine. i could touch my leg and feel the muscle separating from the bone and my toes would be curling inwards.

    Jam, not accident. He was in Orange County, so everyone from LA felt the need to drive there all at once. Unfortunately, my house is between the two.

    man when I was younger up until my late teens it would sometimes like feel like the tendon connecting my ass to my leg was trying to contract until it detached. It would leave me on the ground, looking like the hanging man from a tarot card for awhile until I drank some water and screamed for a bit.

    anyways enough about me lets talk about you

    You ever try and draw Falcor as a giant dong? No? It just ends up looking like a long cyclops.

    Really? Damn, they put us through the sand hill. It sucked balls. Actually had some dumbass in my platoon fall in right on top of an ant hill (NOTE: For those of you who lack the balls to have bravely served our great country, the sand hill was so named because it was covered in red ant hills). He lasted about 20 sec before he lost his shit in ant bites.

    Of course, never mind they told day ZERO that if they fall in on an ant hill, move away from the fucking ant hill.

    those fucking ants are everywhere nowadays. without fail, every time we went out on a field exercise, i would be the asshole who dropped prone right on top of a god damn nest of the things.

    buddy of mine dove into cover right on top of a nest of brown recluses though so i guess it could have been worse

    Benning is not only a Basic Combat Training station, but it's also the Infantry School, which means it serves primarily as the United States Army Infantry School and One Station Unit Training Center. All such types of posts that are related to combat arms (Infantry, Artillary, etc) only train male recruits.

    Or, what?
