Anyone else?!

My calves are sooo tight! Day and night... I do tend to sleep curled up and my lower back and hips have been killing me for weeks but my calves are starting to feel like they're gonna Charlie horse on me any minute. Suggestions?!?

Ugh! I have woken up with charlie horses in my calves a number of times! They KILL! Never fun to wake up that way. I don't really have any suggestions. Sorry Sad

The only solution I know to that one is more potassium so sweet potatoes and bananas! Some runners I know put the actual banana peel on the calves....may be an old wives tale but apparently it helps!
