Ok so I went skiing Friday night, and when I got back I went straight to bed, and woke up with an intense burning/tensing feeling in my upper calf, like right near the crotch of my knee.
I went skiing last night again, and when I went to bed, I woke up in the middle of the night and the same thing happened. This time it was incredibly intense, and lasted for maybe 30 seconds, and almost brought me to tears.
What the hell is going on? I know it's not wise to ask NS for medical advice but oh well.

It's like crystal meth in a can.
It's crystal meth in a can.
Same with everyone above, its probably a cramp. remember to STRETCH right after skiing, throughout the evening (it doesn't have to be obvious, even flexing your foot up against a wall will help cut down on these cramps) and again before bed. eat a banana. also a note on stretching: to build flexibility thereby banishing most debilitating cramps, stretch to the point where you just can't go anymore, hold for 30 seconds, breathe in and on the exhale stretch a little more. its a process of muscle tearing and rebuilding so you have to hold the stretches for at least 30 seconds.
DO NOT stretch to the point where you can't go further.
Just go untill there is a little burning.
If you stretch too far, the little fibres in your muscles tear and take a very long time to heal which makes you even less flexible.
