While touring potential universities, I took a train to one option and was so excited to be in a big city. Coming from a small town, the idea of being in the middle of a large, metropolitan city was exciting to me.
The train came to a halt, I grabbed my bag, and started to walk down the stairs to my future. Except instead of walking, I took a major face plant. For some reason, my leg (or ankle, it was all a blur) randomly gave out on me and I landed face down on the train platform. Not exactly what I envisioned.
I thought it was a fluke, or maybe my foot was still asleep from the ride, but apparently I'm not the only one who has experienced their leg giving out on them, whether it's while they're standing, walking, or doing a different form of exercise.
After doing some research, I came to the conclusion that my muscle just had a small spasm after being inactive for so long, but it turns out there are other, more serious reasons that your legs are giving out.
