Foot cramps morning

Common Questions and Answers about Foot cramps morning


Hi Lisa, I wasn't sure if my foot cramps were related and why they were happening, but now you have me thinking. I noticed it a lot when we were in California recently especially after I would get out of the water from swimming. Very painful. During this time, the same foot was full of pins and needles the entire time we were on vacation. Since we've come home, I have not had this issue. I thought maybe it was the drastic temperature change.
Rest cramps: Cramps at rest are very common, especially in older adults, but may be experienced at any age, including childhood. Rest cramps often occur during the night. While not life-threatening, night cramps (commonly known as nocturnal cramps) can be painful, disruptive of sleep, and they can recur frequently (that is, many times a night, and/or many nights each week). The actual cause of night cramps is unknown.
I'm 19 weeks and for the past few days have woken in the morning with very painful foot or lower leg cramps. I have to wake my husband to get him to stretch my leg. Anybody had the same problem? Any suggestions?
Sharon, have you had an injury to your foot recently? When I broke my toe last year, I got the worst cramps in my calf muscle. I would definitely call the neurologist, as this is a neurological symptom. It usually means that there's some damage to the spinal cord. I think they usually prescribe baclofen for spasticity and spasms. My neuro prescribed flexaril for me, which is a cheap muscle relaxer - it's mild enough that I can take one at work if I need it.
I have had cramps on my left foot after i did some running a little over a week ago. I stopped working out and it seems like it was getting better although it was painful to walk. But then, i woke up this morning with a swollen left foot and was wondering what that means. I can't hardly walk now and the pain "cramps" was initially in the middle top side of my left foot.
Does anyone else have calf cramps at night that leave a sore spot on your calf muscle the next day?
Is there anyone suffering from leg cramps? I had one the other day and this morning. I get leg cramps only in my left leg. I don't understand! I'm scared to even sleep in bed because I was told it happens when your leg is relaxed. Please help!
Just this morning this strange vibration started in my RIGHT foot only. I have had plantar fasciitis since last June and finally got orthopedic inserts for my shoes. The plantar fasciitis which is an inflammation of the ligaments in the foot and heel has gotten much better but now I have this bizarre vibration. Like many of you have reported it is like a pulse: a few seconds on a few seconds off. Its comforting to know that I am not the only one.
I keep getting small cramps this morning. Hope these pills are ok cause I want to get some sleep tonight. Tired and cranky.
I had the leg/foot/toe cramps while on tx, and yes, the pain was horrendous!! I've had 2 kidney stones and I swear the cramps were almost worse! My "noise level" was no where near as difficult to control with the stones. Follow OrphanedHawks advice on how to get out of the bed (as hard as that is!) and get to a wall to do the following....I swear, if you can get to the wall, this does work! Stand at arm's length from a wall with hands on the wall.
Every night I have cramps in my left foot, its like it stiffens right up. Is this dehyation? Should I call the doc. about this? Any helpful ways to stop this?
Hi all, I was up all night with horrid leg pain. The muscles in my right foot and then my right calf started the fun. The worst was by far my left shin muscle. I have verry muscular legs due to the way that I walk. I have never had any MS problems with my legs. I was in teh French Quarter in NO last night. I did some walking with my family. I did not do more or faster than normal. Any ideas what would cause this? It was almost solid pain for 4 hours.
I get foot cramps, especially if I'm doing something with the foot. Unfortunately I have so many problems with my legs that it's not safe for me to drive.
So far this morning, it seems to have stopped. I slept with a heating pad on medium heat on/under/around it all night and so far so good today. Thank you for the advice!!!
My fiance and I finally get intimate after a week or So and I start cramping up in my calves just as things were heating up. I was mortified. I never had cramps at all during this pregnancy and It's my first. As I got bigger we would only have sex in the spoon position, boring after a while but comfortable. Then yesterday morning we try missionary because I miss it and my calves start going haywire. We had to stop. I had to massage my calves; he tried to help.
I have trouble standing still and sitting in certain positions because I get a real painfull ache in my hamstring. I have lost some feeling in my 3 small toes on my right foot and they are tingling. Also to top it all off I get woken up in the early hours of the morning with severe hamstring cramp on my right side which forces me out of bed, it takes ages for it to relax and even then its not relaxed completely.
30am I've had pretty uncomfortable lower back pain, once I was up for a while and drove my hubs to work I started getting cramps that almost felt like I was gonna start a heavy period. I rested about 2 hours then started doing errands, where I noticed it hurts just to drive now, everytime I had to pick up my foot to either stop my car or gas it, my hips hurt!
I was eating a banana every morning and still got them. Didn't make a difference. I just get them once in a while. I just not to stretch my toes down, but when you're half a sleep it can just happen.
I have no idea about copaxone and leg cramps. However, I used to have leg cramps and RLS. When I began taking iron supplements for my anemia and neurotin for the neuropathic pain my leg cramps went awayas did the RLS. It could be cause by many things and I think you should tell a doctor. Even if it is a common symptom of MS it could still be caused by something else.
I have had the foot and hand tingling problem for 10 years. Finally I went through every possible test at two famous medical centers, and all doctors could conclude is that I had "small-fiber neuropathy" that was likely the result of a mild virus. One of the nation's leading specialists in neuropathy told me to start taking 600 mg. of the amino acid "alpha lipoic acid" in divided doses (I take 300 mg., twice a day), which I buy at GNC vitamin stores.
In the past month, I've had 3 episodes of incredibly severe bilateral muscle cramping in the calves, thighs, and buttocks. I've had your normal foot or calf cramps many times in the past, but this is way beyond that. Twice I've ended up on the floor, unable to do anything except cry out for help. The spasms simultaneously affect both calves, the back and sides of both thighs, and both buttocks.
I have had my share of leg and foot cramps but nothing compares to the pain caused by the inner thigh cramps. For several months I was having them twice a week. I was to the point that I feared going to bed. I tried everything but nothing worked. THEN someone told me about soaking in Epsom Salt. IT WORKS!!! I soak in a hot tub, half full of water,with 4 cups of Epsom salt, usually once a week. It has stopped the foot, calf, back of thigh,and inner thigh cramps.
I was woken up this morning with cramping in my calves. Which is new. I am drinking lots of Gatorade, and taking a potassium supplement daily. I do not go anywhere out side of my home, with fear that I may have a cramp. I have noticed that when my feet get cold that is when the cramping begins. I am a 53 year old female, that has low potassium levels, that is why I take a supplement and (I am also Hypoglycemic). As far as my potassium levels, they have dropped to 3.
I am one day past IVF and am having lower menstrual cramps. Is this unusual. Did anyone else's doctor require them to have bedrest for 24 hours? Thanks for listening.
Many years ago I suffered severe leg cramps. I would get up in the morning and get charlie horses in both legs at once! That was horrible. The leg cramps went away on their on eventually. Home this helps.
I have been having terrible Feet and leg aches...apart from the cramps. I just cannot walk, if i walk like normal people, my feet are swollen or I have throbbing pain, which extends upto the calf muscles. Especially the sole of my feet is very painful. Is it my footwear? Iv changed so many that I may have to resort to bathroom slippers even to work :-) :-) My Dr says i need more calcium and she wants me to drink 1 ltr milk a day ...OOOooooooo.
I have had right foot/ankle cramps for the last 2 years or so. The calf muscle tighens up at night and I have to stretch it back out every morning.
I can relate to the cramping that you are having. During TX I also experienced several bout's of cramps in my foot and right hip. I was taking several different supplement at the time including magnesium, Zinc and calcium. I found no patten to the attacks. I might have several cramps within a couple days, then nothing for Weeks or more. The even persisted for some time post TX. I am now 1.5 years post TX, I have not had the cramps for some time.
I am experiencing very bad leg cramps every night until the early morning hours. It causes restlessness and wakes me up a few times a night. Does anyone else have this problem or know what to do? I am already eating a banana everyday for potassium and taking an iron pill for amenia, I have read that it could be a sign of amenia. I am also doing calf stretches because I read that this should also help.
