More than half of adults report they have had charley horses at night. The sudden, intense muscle contractions can last anywhere from a few seconds to several excruciating minutes. According to HuffPost, a charley horse can't be stopped once it starts. However, you may be able to reduce the duration of pain. Next time it happens, flex your foot to get some relief. In other words, pull toes toward your body, not away from it. If that’s not enough, stand up and do a calf stretch. Put your toes up on something, like a towel or a book. If you're getting charley horses frequently, tell your doctor to rule out the possibility of a more serious health issue.
