charley horse

I woke up with a charley horse in my left calf this morning, and I've read they are common in pregnancy. I could kind of feel it coming on, but I haven't had one in years so I guess I didn't connect the dots. Besides the muscle cramp, I also became really hot, thirsty, had to pee, and felt like I was going to throw up or pass out all at once. Luckily it subsided and I had a few sips of water. My poor leg is still sore! I am trying to drink a ton of water today - any other tips? (Avocados, bananas and I do not get along).

I'm 17 weeks, 5 days.
