The painful video of a California man suffering from a cramp in his leg has gone viral. Angel Bermudez posted the 50 seconds video of his undulating and unusual muscle cramp to his Facebook. The footage shows muscles contracting as if they were alive. Bermudez is clearly in pain as he grunts and moans ‘ oh my god it wont stop’.
Bermudez had just left gym and was sitting in a vehicle when the cramp started. The Facebook post tells ‘After the workout. Start to relax and then this happens. F******g cramp. Look at this s***. Painful yes it was.’
The muscle cramp could have been caused by a number of things. It is possible Bermudez was dehydrated after his workout, causing the painful episode. According to WebMD ‘A muscle cramp is a strong, painful contraction or tightening of a muscle that comes on suddenly and lasts from a few seconds to several minutes.’
The comments went wild offering sympathy and tips for Bermudez. A woman suggested Bermudez put mustard on cramp and said that tons of athletes do it and in fact, it might work! Cramps can be caused by a deficiency in acetylcholine, neurotransmitter that stimulates muscles to work. Mustard contains acetic acid, which helps body produce more acetylcholine. Bermudez replied to a comment saying ‘Looked like a god damn alien in my damn leg was gonna bust out’
