I feel your pain! Eat bananas, take an iron supplement, stretch well after a workout. I also heard today that if you eat a tablespoon of mustard right when it happens that it will be gone within 30 seconds..I haven't tried that one for myself yet though. Good luck!

A Charlie horse is basically a muscle cramp in the leg that's really bad!! I wake up with them in the middle of the night screaming and my husband has to help me with a football player stretch to stop it! You can also get them pretty bad when dehydrated as well so it's important to drink lots of water!!

I know how you feel...I take Ibuprofen and that helps.


Coincidentally, I do horse-riding and my name is Charley!!!
