    HOW OLD ARE YOU? Have you been stressed lately? Do you have anxiety? Maybe you slept on it wrong that happened to me before, it was painful.

    Don't know if it is the same but it happens to my leg also from time to time during the sleep (once or twice a year now). It happens on my thigh - the part between hip and knee - (backside of it). Sometimes it is too strong (for example like the one three days ago, that I still continue to feel a small cut on the back of my thigh). It always happens to my left leg. I am 32, doing amateur level sport. This left leg issue is apart from my performance (It doesn't come when I am overall weaker). One thing that triggers mine is getting cold at night. My google searches tell me to use vitamins (B and E), regular massage (i.e once in three weeks or a month), more and smart leg exercise (not too intense or destructive, more focus on flexibility). I d be grateful for those who could contribute to this.
