I am having an issue with cramp in my feet. Since I was a teenager I have had cramps in my toes occasionally. I thought nothing of it and never bothered doctors with it. In the last few years I have had a problem with a cramp/pain in my left leg which I cannot predict when or why it happens. My feeling is it’s more a nerve issue probably from my back and my poor posture.
In the last six months I have had seven cramps In my feet. Two in my left foot and five, one severe in my right foot. All have felt similar. my foot bends, toes downwards and I get a pain in the underside of my foot. It feels like someone is pushing something into the bottom of my foot about the size of a knuckle or thumb.
However, I had an attack last night[1 Jan] that I would say was severe. Again my toes bent over and my foot raised off the bed and felt like it was trying to form an ‘O’. After about 5 seconds it subsided. When it did it felt like someone was releasing a blood pressure cuff. It stayed uncomfortable for about 5 more minutes and in the morning it still felt stiff. My feet don’t look different and I don’t have swollen ankles. My toe cramps have not increased.
Any advice any input? I will contact the doctors after the holiday. However, your views are welcome.
Hi, David I too get cramp in my feet. And what you describe in the bottom of the foot and the toes but not as bad as yours. I used to get servere cramping of the inner thighs they would still be sore the next day. Just wondering anyone gets back pain and pain nd clicking in the neck and base of skull.jeanette
Thank you for the reply Jeanette. I get back pain. However, and to my relief not as bad as it used to be. I had one spell a few years back where I used to fear moving in the morning as it was so painful. I hope your pain eases.
