I know what you mean, but I haven't heard that term. Why are they called Jimmy Legs? I don't get that very often, but I do get charlie horses. At times, I get them bad enough to actually scream.

Yup. During pregnancy I had restless leg syndrome. Terrible feeling. It was like cramping and spasming.

My dh used to get bad Charlie horses until the Dr told him he needed more vitamin b and potassium. Now he doesn't get them at all.

That's often caused by not enough salt in your diet. I get them too, it was worse in pregnancy
