I've treated professional boxers, rugby players and Olympic cyclists for problems such as this and I can assure you, most top players have their boots made to measure and bespoke orthorics prescribed.

In one case for an England rugby player, I recommended he doesn't get out of bed for a piss without having his orthotics in his slippers.

It's common in athletes due to the strain on the calf muscle and subsequent strain it places on the achilles and Plantar fascia. Relieving the tension by stretches and correct footwear/orthotics generally solves 95% of patients in my experience
Nice post!
Never had trouble with my feet until a year ago and woke up a number of times and couldn't stand on my feet with pain. Went out and bought Echo golf shoes and trainers and the problem disappeared. So easy to underestimate the problems that can originate from feet and the way we walk

Really am hoping for rose, wanyama and lamela to be available for selection after the international break......would that be realistic?

I know eric and danny have been out a very long time and wont be getting straight out onto the pitch but getting everybody back fit and well can only help us push on in the cl and put a great run together in the pl.

Has Lamela started training with the rest of the team? I thought he was training on his own.

From what i last remember he was soon to join the rest of the squad. What condition he is in exactly i dont know. It will be a slow process but even so it will be great to have him in the mix and pushing the others for a place.

Regardless of if Rose is fit, or if he's the best choice. There's no way that Poch drops Davies for what is arguably our most prestigious game in a few years.

From a footballing perspective, you've got to say Davies has earned the right to test himself against the best.

I would expect Poch to pick the best team for the job, so he has to pick the best choice. For me personally that would mean Davies starts.

Actually, the after asparagus bit is clever, you been dabbling in urine therapy Mattie, haven't you?

Many a truth spoken in piss. Inulin from Asparagus feeds the friendly bacteria from Kombucha, it is a strong blend my friend.

If anyone is looking for a delicious way to modify your urine cuisine experience try the urine asparagus shake.

Eat as much asparagus as you can the night before.

The next day collect all urine in a blender. Blend urine with a few sprigs of mint for a delicious culinary experience.

The subtlety of the asparagus really makes this a powerhouse drink.

4. Not all asparagus scented pee is the same. During digestion, the vegetable’s sulfurous amino acids break down into smelly chemical components in all people. But only about one-fifteenth of the asparagus scented urine population appears to have the special detoxifying gene that allows their potent urine to be beneficial.

Got to say I found the above funny :wtf:

Before everyone starts, I have never done urine therapy, but believe it to have some merit for some.

It’s obviously hard to judge by physical appearance.But the couple of videos I’ve seen of Lamela and photos.He looks in fantastic nick ,muscle definition wise.I presume they are just being cautious re physical contact,but I’d imagine he will be back with main group after the break.

He's a PL footballer in his early twenties who's had a long term injury, he's hardly going to look like a fat bastard.

Doesn't matter what his thighs looks like on a photo ( and personally I find the fawning over his training pics a little creepy), it's all about the confidence to play through any niggly pain and be mentally prepared to go into tackles etc. Plus his obvious rustiness and lack of match sharpness.

He could be Mr. Universe but I very much doubt we'll see him returning to top form for quite a while (if at all). One of the problems is I doubt he's going to get a run of games to find that form and sharpness.

Your statements are as much as Guess as mine.For all you know ,he could have been carrying this injury for 6 mnths.And could come back better than he ever was.Its clearly all just a Guessing game.And you see plenty of players come back from breaks looking obviously out of shape.Im just saying looking at him he looks in peak physical condition which can only be a Plus.

Wonder if you can give me some advice. I hadn't had that cramp in my calf muscles for years but lately, when I wake up and do that automatic wake up leg stretchy thing my calves keep pinging, especially my right one, and I have to leap out of bed and touch my toes to stretch it out.

I'm 50, not playing any sport lately, but do get plenty of (general walking) excercise.

Mrs bc has got me taking some magnesium today (@Lemon ) but any idea why this is happening now?

It's because you're posts are too long.

My advice is probably useless as I have no medical expertise whatsoever, but are you a drinker?

I've never been a big drinker, but I used to drink a lot more than I do now and I used to get that horrible leg cramp first thing in the morning far more often then and particularly when I used to drink spirits.

Probably something to do with dehydration.

Do you sleep on your right, generally?

Calcium is also needed for muscle contraction (plus cell repair, nerve impulse etcetera), would add some if you aren't a dairy fiend, Coral Calcium is a decent Carbonate form (Now foods do one which is above sea and decent), you could try hydroxide which gives you a colloidal form (mixed with molasses is a kick ass combo), or Calcium Phosphate (Min-Col).

If you have been eating more refined sugars lately, Calcium will perhaps be low.

Are you drinking enough water? Enough Sodium (can be an issue if your misses/you are low sodium types? Have a bath with 1/2kg of Himalayan rock salt to test if you think it might be sodium).

Probably good to gently stretch before bed, stimulate a bit of blood into the area.

Ps. Touch your toes, at 50, yeah right :) what I will say, is that if my experience is anything to go by, then just the increase in libido from Calcium makes any other positive effect a bonus (makes me all I can be...).

I actually stopped drinking a couple of years ago due to an ulcer and a herniated oesophageal valve. But do drink plenty of water.

Yeah my H.pylori was ok.

I have cut down on drinking milk a lot lately but do still eat yogurts quite a lot.


Thanks for the info above as well.
Mother's a nurse and always tells me the worst when I bring up a symptom, so maybe she isn't the best of nurses, but either way, whenever I hear people talk about their diagnosis of ALS, it comes from a "my toe was cramping and didn't think anything of it".

Don't want to freak you out BC, but better be safe than sorry and I know this may seem over the top. But family friend was just diagnosed and she was having a small ping in her hip for a couple months.
