Should I still have charlie horse pain two days after being hit?

I had a charlie horse two days ago and am still in pain.

If the charlie horse was big enough you could still be experiencing pain two days later. Try eating bananas or soaking the area in warm salt water.

A charley horse is a severe cramp of the thigh. It can be caused by injury to the area but can also be the result of potassium deficiency. It can hurt for several days or even longer. If the pain does not subside, consult your physician for further evaluation of your symptoms.

Charlie horse pain usually occurs when you do an exercise. This is a muscle catch. But the pain is severe so do the exercise like bending and stretching for relief.

It could just be some muscle soreness. I would try to put some heat on it and take some ibprofen to see if that will help with the pain.
