Pulsing/bubbling in calf?
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:04:04 AM »
So I woke up this morning and my calf was pulsing like crazy--even in multiple spots. It wasn't painful, just weird. When I stood up it stopped--but when I sit or lay down it goes right back to it, constantly. It's scaring me so badly, I have no idea what to do. It doesn't seem to want to stop. Like I said, it's constant. I'm scared it might be a peripheral aneurysm or something serious like that. Help!!

Sounds like a nerve or muscle.

Try drinking water. Hydration plays a big part in muscle craps and twitches. Also, check your potassium intake as that can also affect it. Bananas and/or peanut butter are excellent sources. Whenever my potassium gets low, my calves get achy in exactly the way you mentioned.

The way you describe it as "bubbling" makes me think it's the same sensation I've had at various times before.  Pretty sure it's just a benign muscle twitch.  Eat or drink something high in potassium and try to de-stress; those are the best ways to get rid of 'em IMO :)
