I got an intense pain in my calf muscle. What is going on with me ?

Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night (or even when I first wake in the morning) with an intense pain in my calf muscle. I can actually see the muscles spasming! It hurts so bad the I either have to bite down on the pillow to keep from screaming or squeeze my boyfriends hand really hard until it subsides. then when it feels better enough to walk it hurts for about 3 days after ? What is going on with me ?

i've had that...and i know..the pain is horrific. i call it a charlie horse..but yeah, it's a major muscle spasm. i find if i've been working out alot, especially my legs and not cooling down properly or strething long enough, i sometimes get them. I really don't think there's too much you can do, other than stretching, putting muscle run on, or getting active. sometimes being inactive and sitting down all day can cause it.
