Was sure there was a thread about this already. Either I’m going mad or the poster who started it has since had themselves deleted (RIP).
(TL;DR: Spasming muscle at my ankle while driving today that was very uncomfortable although didn’t actually cause me to have unsteady acceleration.)
Anyway, opening with a pretty specific query: Learned to drive (automatics only) at the end of August. Then after about 2 weeks we had to put our car (an i30) into the Hyundai place as it had a major engine issue. 5 weeks later and Hyundai have agreed to pay for all of it (woo) and given us a courtesy car (double woo).
Today I drove the new car (SantaFe) for the first time. It’s bigger than our one - one of those high monsters that aren’t much bigger inside like a QashQai which I guess might be relevant due to the different sitting posture - and I had to pull over at one stage because I was getting a weird twinge in my right foot: I was basically getting a weird jiggle to it on the ankle like the muscle was just getting strained and spasming.
After a small pause I got under way again and it was okay but it was definitely a bit upsetting. Luckily the minute wobble it gave to the accelerator was light enough not to affect the speed.
Basically is this something other people get when driving? Just one of those things? Or do I just have funny muscles?
Thanks for reading.
