Charlie the Horse

My left shoe is squeaking. Loudly. With every step. I think the lady who sits by the door is starting to hate me because I have to walk by her cubicle every time I go to the bathroom. I try to walk in a manner that silences the squeak, but the squeak remains and I just end up looking like someone just gave me a charliehorse.

Charliehorse. I'd like to know the origin of that word. To the internet!

Update: In the UK they're called choppers. And in Australia they're called corky's. But that doesn't answer my question.
