Leg Cramps!

Lately I have been getting cramps in my calves at least once a week.  Most of the time it affects my left leg, and on occasion the right one will feel left out and join in on the fun.  Last night it was a regular party for my calves.  I was woken up at 3 different times last night in severe pain from a leg cramp.  First time it was my right leg, and then the second and third time it was my left leg. My calves are extremely sore today, and I'm afraid of stretching them too much in case that sets off another cramp.  I'm sure my students would find it hilarious if I all of sudden began making funny noises to hide the fact that I was in pain.

I don't know if it's part of the fibro, if I'm dehydrated or if I'm lacking some major potassium, but I do know that I didn't get an invitation for the party my legs held last night.  I'm drinking a gallon of water and eating a dozen bananas just in case.
