I read this forum and was soooo happy to see other people like myself. I'm a 28 year old female that has suffered with cramps as far back as I can remember. Once I hit about 25yrs old, I would get calve cramps constantly and that's it. I started trying to work out around 27 and that's when I started getting tricep cramps(you think a thigh cramp is the end of the world? Think again). I've also had bicep cramps, jaw cramps(has happened when yawning) and even neck cramps.
Tonight for the first time ever I experienced a new cramp; the inner thigh cramp! Earlier tonight, I had got in an argument with my partner and as I yelped out for pain she chose not to come to the rescue until she noticed I was yelping for a little too long. Although not timed, im sure without a shadow of a doubt that this was the longest cramp I have ever experienced in life. It hit me in my sleep and I got up because I can't take a cramp lying down. As soon as I stood up, the most horrible pain I ever felt in my life hit my inner thigh kinda close to the groin area. At first I thought it would settle down like all of the other numerous cramps I have had, but no it did not. It would loosen up and then tighten right back up if I made the slightest movement. I half stood/half leaned on the bed and cried a cry that I haven't cried since childhood. My girlfriend wanted to call 911 and I almost agreed but the cramp was settling down so I denied. But I swore that my leg muscle or tendon was just about to pop out of my leg. The thing that may have caused this uncommon cramp for me is walking. I recently became a mail carrier and I did an intense walking route today and my body is not accustomed to walking at all. So maybe I put my leg in shock lol. I searched on yahoo search for "inner thigh cramps" and was blessed to find this forum. I have eaten a banana, taken a 250mg pill of magnesium and also drunken a full glass of water. I haven't moved the leg as of yet out of fear, but I have reassumed the sleeping position. In the morning we shall see what the leg feels like.
