Why is there prolonged, involuntary contraction when stretching legs in the morning?

by admin on November 26, 2009

When I wake up, I stretch my legs in bed. Sometimes, my right leg stays stretched. It hurts a lot, but after about 30 seconds it relaxes and I just feel some soreness there for the next 5 minutes. Does anyone know what this is called? I’m sure it happens to other people as well. When i touch my leg while it is stretched, it is hard…i can feel the muscles being pulled taut.
I should add that the involuntary stretching occurs in the calf. And it’s pretty intense pain.

It is called Neurovegetativ Dystonia, the cause is the defficiency of calcium and magnezium, elements that are very important in the muscle contraction and relaxion, if they are not available, the muscle cannot relax properly and stays streched and hurts!
treatment: calcium tablets and magnesium with vitamin B6 tablets (in europe it is called Magna B6 from Sanofi)
