Foot cramps while cycling

Common Questions and Answers about Foot cramps while cycling

foot

I don't know if this is even a legitimate problem area, but I'm having problems with anxiety while driving in my car. It's getting to the point where I'm afraid one day that I won't be able to even get into the thing. My Dr has had me on Prozac and Celexa but I'm now off of both due to the bad side effects I was having. I go back again on the 17th of this month to see what else they'll prescribe. Anyone else have this "phobia"? Thx, Thom.
The T4 was then raised to 100 mcg, still cycling the T3. Continued to gain weight and got foot cramps. T3 raised to 25mcg w/ 100 mcg T4. My free T3 then went too high, out of range. I had 2 panic attacks, the first in almost 2 years, but for me that had been symptomatic of untreated hypo. I had no other hyper symptoms. Thinking the problem might be with the Mylan generic, I went back on Cytomel last month and my doctor cut the dosage to 75 mcg T4 and 15 mcg. Cytomel.
I am not exercising, because I suffer from cramps in thigh and foot, but I will resume exercising once my weight gets lower further. I am going to divide meals as you suggested and I'll keep you informed, I will make the recipe above but I am going to omit rice, because I've already developed phobia towards all carbs.
I currently have not told anyone about the dx except for immediate family, and am in the middle of an episode of leg stiffness and foot tingling. I was prescribed Tecfidera, did fine with the starter week but then on day 6 of the full dose started having severe stomach pain/nausea which continued until day 8 when I couldn't take it any longer and just stopped taking the meds. I'm expecting to hear from my doctor on Monday to discuss what to do about the Tecfidera.
I woke up with my left arm and hand clenched and unusable until my chiropractor used electric stimulation and manipulation to open up my arm. My left foot and leg cramps (usually from a lying down and changing position) and my big toe goes up and my toes splay out. This has happened many times. I am fatigued, feel disoriented, dizzy just sitting and when in the shower and I close my eyes to rinse my hair.
I have to admit, I am very, very, very stressed. (I guess they are fasiculations, they don't seem to be muscle cramps, however I think muscles are affected.) I have no pain, no limited range of motion, no weakness, no numbness. No weakness for ten years rules out ALS. I don't have MS symptoms, either. I can walk and run fine.
I continue to have foot cramps, although they are less and the leg cramps have ceased. I have night sweats, yet am cold and have to wear socks to bed. I said I don't think I have a conversion problem because when I increased my T-4, my T-3 went up. (although the T-4 barely moved at all) I am asking for help interpreting these labs because I finally feel completely lost. I had to lower my meds to prove to my pcp that what i suspected would happen to my body was valid. It was.
My legs and hips often feel disjointed. Tonight I shifted my weight from one foot to another while cooking dinner and my arch snapped and it's been difficult to walk on it all night. I can feel the "snap" every time. It's not my imagination and I'm tired of doctors looking at me saying "hmmmm, I see, how long has this blah, blah, here's another pill, oh it doesn't work, here's another, doesn't work, up the dosage, blah blah". What the hell?
This has brought her to a stop to where she can hardly function. Her problem started a little over a year ago while we were on vacation in Las Vegas. If you have heard from anyone else, please, please contact me at ***@****. We are fast going broke with all the tests and Doctor bills and we still have no answers. Like you we are seaching for an answer.
Thanks a million..i just cant get over these foot/calves cramps that i get a few times a day and its only day 3 for me i can handle everything else but these spasms are killing me, it just scares me b/c i drive standard and it can creep up on me any time...any suggestions? i was up all night last night scared of one creeping up...any suggestions?
Then it sucked for a while, then I got more, etc I 'm sure you all know the story. Well, sparing all the details I decided to get clean, kind of by choice, today is day 4 clean of any opiates. I have not slept, when I do, I wake up in a panic. What am I going to do with out my pills? How am I going to go through the day with out something to give me energy, it's like I have no energy, I have no appetite, I have 2 kids to take care of and to go to work.
Nine out of ten times when I have an orgasm I have intense adominal pian then I have to have a bowel movement. The pain doesn't necessarily go away for a little while. None of my doctors have heard of this or know how to treat it since some major problems were ruled out. One of my doctors gave me this medication to place under my tongue to control the spasms but it doesn't help at all.
I had had an MRI in May, and I did speak with a neurologist while I was at the hospital last week, and he was the one who stated that there is no indication of MS, there were no tests that could be performed at the hospital to help with a diagnosis, and that I had to tough it out for the next few weeks until my neurologist appointment, where all the proper tests could be performed. Through all of this, I am convinced that at some point I will get an answer and that I am not crazy!!!
Hi, I'm JibJen (Jenny). I am 42. I have one foot in Limbo land and one foot in MS Land. I am dx. at probable MS right now. I have been being followed by a new doc, for about 6 months now who on first visit and looking at my MRI of 20 lesions and past records is confident suggesting this is MS and dx. my facial pain as TN. My last neuro I was with for 3 years told me my lesions/symptoms were from age and migraine. Current problems are hand spasms and TN and fatigue.
Dilated pupils, diarrhea, runny nose, goose bumps, abdominal pain, stomach cramps, sweating, agitation, anxiety, nausea, vomiting, leg cramps, general aches and pains, and sleeplessness. This list is not absolute. You may experience all of these symptoms, only some of them, or other symptoms. Again, we are all different. Below is the famous Thomas Recipe. It gives some general information along with supplements that help with the withdrawal symptoms.
oh my gosh, while googling for "heat sensation in lower leg" I found these comments....has anyone been told what causes this? Mine started about a month or so ago and happens periodically. It is SO strange and I haven't even mentioned it to anyone for fear they'd think I was imagining it or something! I was glad to see others describing the exact same sensation. I have my annual physical in about 3 weeks and will mention it, but am also thinking my dr will think I'm a hypochondriac!
Generally symptons include some pins and needles in arm if I lean forward, and/or a pain in the shoulder if I have not been to the gym in a while (keeping fit with mild weight training seems to help, not doing so seems to invite some pain/numbness). Now the problem: One day after exercise (after 2-week pause for weights), while walking, got a sharp pressure like feeling in chest/back. Came and went with movement. 1 81 mg asprin and I felt ok.
Proper shoes, proper ergonomics at work, while driving, while sitting and while sleeping is required. Take control of the situation and do some physical exercises to increase the strength of the lower back muscles and follow the advice of your neurologist. Take care!
It could stick around for a while this time and when you recover could go away for a long time maybe months or years. But the second you need something more than your higher power it will come back stronger than ever. You don't realize when you turn it away that it is working out the whole time and can't wait to fight you. Good Luck and ask anything but don't really on us too much as recovery will be all on you. We can help but its only knowledge you have to turn it into wisdom.
This happened to me a few days ago while on vacation. I didn't injure it or hit it, but suddenly felt my pinkie finger swelling and going numb. It swelled so tight I thought it was going to burst. It was twice as fat as my other pinkie. I used ice, pressure, elevation. My whole finger turned purple. It is now 4 days since it happened and it is back to normal size but still discolored and tender. Since I work in medical, I will ask about it.
It does it all over and around both legs, right above my knees up to my behind and continues for about 3 minutes or so. It is directly under the skin and feels like if I put my hand there while it does it, then I could feel the "pop" underneath the skin! I can't count them but I would estimate that it does around 50-75 "pops" each time before it is through.
But what amazes me is that I have turned into a complete blob. While on my meds, with my cancerous tumors intact and growing, I could go anywhere, walk to the moon, climb stairs...you get the picture. Now, I could just sit on my couch and die if it were possible. I have shortness of breath, depression, apathy, anxiety, sweats, chills, no concentration. my doctors keep asking me if I am going to hurt myself.
As soon as you can force yourself to, get some mild exercise such as walking, cycling, swimming, etc. This will be hard at first, but will make you feel considerably better.
I agree w/ Paul764, almost all of the cases above sound like Exortional headaches which is mainly caused by poor breathing techniques (mainly holding your breath while straining to get that final rep or two) while exerting a lot of stress during. The most common exercises to cause these are squats and leg extensions. If you get this the best advice to to take at least 2-3 weeks off of strength training. IF you don't take time off the condition can be chronic.
Sometimes I'm at my desk with knee at 90 degree angle, sometimes sitting with leg pulled in, sometimes driving, sometimes walking, sometimes while running, and sometimes while sleeping. I'm going to try switching my shoes for work and for exercise to see if that helps.
It would hurt the worst in the morning but I get up and walk. Once I had walked that was it for a while. I would have to take pain meds 30 minutes prior to getting up. I have moderate to severe DDD and Facet Syndrome.
