I woke at about 3.30 this morning, I was lying on my back and I moved my left leg pulling my foot up pointing toes to the ceiling; then the strangest excruciating pain shot up my leg through my whole body then the right leg did the same, the only way I can explain it is..... If you had strings like a puppet so you can pull the legs and arms up by tightening the strings and then wind them up tight so the puppet was bent over. As all this was happening i was shouting for hubs to help me I needed to stand, he thought I had cramp in my calf muscles and started to rub them, but he was suprised to find it wasn't muscle cramp, somehow I managed to get up off the bed but couldn't stand upright as these 'strings' were still wound tight, Hubs held me and we walked round the bedroom, with me almost screaming in pain, I managed to bend my foot pointing my toes down and then the other foot then arms etc. This took 15 mins or so then he got me back in to bed. I fell asleep for a while and woke at 5.30. I do hope you can understand what I'm trying to describe but more than that has anybody else had this as this is the 2nd time this has happened to me and its a bit scary.
