I keep getting a like cramp feeling on top of my foot/ankle area. It comes on having walked the shortest of distances. When I stretch the foot out it is also painful as would happen when trying to get rid of cramp. It is primarily in the right foot but the left foot is joining in too now. But I've really only heard of cramp in the instep of the foot. Has anyone else experienced this? any ideas what to do about it.
If your feet are hurting on the bottom and not the top, it may be plantar Fasciitis. It's very painful and is mostly on the heels and balls of your feet. I hope this is not what you're experiencing, it's not curable, doctor recommended really stiff insoles but, they just made them hurt more. Good luck and way to go, keep improving your health!

I have Fibromyalgia. I get excruciating cramps (charlie horses) in my calfs, toes, arch of feet, top of feet, inner right thigh, sides of calfs from the outside knee down to ankle. When I walk outside my home such as going to get groceries I am sure to have these cramps at night. They may also come during the daytime. My fingers and hands spasm also. My fingers on my right hand will pull in toward the center or my hand.. I became very ill about 2 years ago.
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.
My first question is about foot cramps. I have read a little about pregnant women getting cramps in their legs, and I had one last week. But I have been struggling w/ really BAD foot cramps..I woke up the other night and I was almost in tears because I could not get the cramp out...Is foot cramping common as well? I think I read leg cramps could come from a lack of calcium, could that be the case w/ foot cramps as well? I am taking a horse of a prenatal vitamin, lol!
I have a question. I have a lump that seems attached to the bone on the top of my foot. (From the diagram I looked up it seems to be on the 2nd cuneiform) it does not move and by that I mean it feels like it is anchored to the bone, it has gotton bigger over the last few days. (No injuries, no trauma).The lump does not hurt but my foot aches and it travels up to my ankle and almost up to my hip.I couldnt sleep last night because of the dull ache and cramps.
I heard the cramps is because of not enough calcium. If you go to your symptoms page on this app you can putnin your symptoms like legs cramps then push ok, it will come up with a explanation mark beside it, click on it and it will give u information on that symptom. Massaging the area helps too.
I am 37 weeks. For the last 3 days I have been experiencing Charlie horse like cramps on both legs, upper thighs/inner thighs. I thought maybe dehydration but it's consistent every night at the same time. What's going on?
I just started getting the buzzing today. right foot most noticeable on the outside right side of the foot closer to the toes. buzzes for 2-3 seconds, second pause, then buzzing again. Then it may stop for a while and start up again. I am under more stress than usual today.
Hi Mary...sounds like a lot of autoimmune issues going on. R u r on meds for ur Sjorgens or OA?..... Low levels of Potassium can cause the charley horse pain u mention....u should have labs done to look for other low levels...like magnessium, calcium...or vitamin D or B12.
I have not had any pain, tingling or typical numbness to speak of. I do have very slight numbness of the skin only on top of my big toe and above my ankles only about 4 inches above the lateral malleolus but i can feel pin pricks and fingernail tapping lightly and the numbness is only on the surface. My drop foot symptoms started appearing very suttle over the last year in the right foot only. I now remember tripping occaisionally when walking and tripping going up stairs.
Ever since I have had sometimes severe muscle twitches and cramps in my toes, calf, top of my foot, heel, etc. It keeps me up at night, and is very distracting and sometimes painful. I asked around (a few friends who probably don't know lol) and they said it could be the nerve either mis-firing, or trying to regrow. My neurosurgeon says that if I haven't gotten anything back within the first year after damage, I won't. He says it's the nerve randomly firing with no real purpose.
Sometimes the cramps are at the ankle near the top of my foot and it could happen a couple times a night. I have controlled high pressure and high choloresterol if this means anything.
I found my dents last evening at work. At the top front of my scalp (skull) dents on either side of the center very top (from the mid to the front hairline) about 3 fingertips long and about 1/2 inch wide. About maybe 1/8th in deep. I am a cosmetologist, I do my hair everyday and I would have found these dents if they had existed before yesterday. I am very aware of my face and head, and I believe it happened overnight.
Later on that night however it was all good! I was on top and everything went very smoothly. So I guess we won't be doing missionary anymore. 29Weeks.
You should have a comprehensive workup for MS, so that you can know the truth (as we know it) and you can continue with your life. I would recommend a MRI of the Brain and C-spine with contrast. Based on the results of this test you may need further testing. Sometimes an MRI is sufficient to diagnose MS. If not, you should have a lumbar puncture to look for inflammation (Tourtelotte panel/IgG index, oligoclonal bands) and visual/somatosensory evoked potentials.
If they occur, I can do nothing for upto 5 minutes except lie on the floor and think about the pain. To top off the horrendous experience, my calf will be very stiff and painful for several hours afterwards and prone to recramping if I am not very careful. My whole day/evening is ruined. I have read up on some of the common solutions such as drinking plenty of water, salt intake, stretching before exercise but they have no effect.
I get cramps in my right foot,, sometimes one toe will pull over the top of the one next to it; can't pull it back, or massage it out; hurts so bad! That happened in my water exercise class yesterday. My toe cramps seem to happen more often when my feet are cold.
Sometimes my big toe just stick straight up in the air and I can't control it at all, the cramp spreads from the toe to the top of my foot and into the front calf muscles. It's most prevalent within a few hours to a day or so of my shot night. I've found stretching the back of my legs regularly by standing on a step and trying to put my heels down to the next step very helpful, esp when having an acute cramp. Also, the more water I can consume on the day of and after my shot the better....
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.
I wear a big ridid AFO brace on my right foot/ankle and that foot and/or toes will still cramp up while wearing the brace. I even get foot cramps while driving; There doesnt seem to be any specific timing to any of this. My rheumy happened to notice my hand spasms recently, so he sent me for blood tests ( I dont know yet if they showed anything) CBC, CMP, ESR, and Magnesium. But I have a muscle relaxer (Soma) and Lyrica (for nerve pain in my outer hip areas that stem from my spine).
You know what helps, bananas. Try to have one a day or potassium rich foods. Hope it works for u, those leg cramps are no joke.
I am starting to feel like a hypochondriac if I turn up to my neurologist appointment with a list of irrelevant things that is as long as a bus. Last night I had an awful time with dozens of very painful foot cramps and hand cramps happening within at regular intervals and they only stopped when I slept. This has happened before but not at this severity. Then half-way I got winded by a cramp in what seemed like my ribs!! What a strange feeling!
hi yes i get the cramp and tightening on the top of my left foot!! but mine only comes when or after walking for a while. i have a functional foot drop on my left side so i think mine is down to spacticity .?????? and it is sooooo uncomfortable when it hapens. and sometimes i have had it while driving.
Hi, Sorry to hear, your aching. I am hyperthyroid and ache, all over daily, mostly my left shoulder/arm. Pain meds do not seem to help at all. But what does help, is just laying down and relaxing, when the aches get intense. Hope you feel better. Good luck to you !

0 several times a year, and not once did I experience cramping in my feet, toes or calves. That is why I'm concerned at this time, why I am experiencing daily cramps and a heaviness in my legs? If anyone has experienced the same problems and has an idea what the problem could be, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Thank You!
