Foot cramps cold

Common Questions and Answers about Foot cramps cold


723685 tn?1267050295 l have been experiencing severe foot cramps for two weeks now. It starts in my toes, then moves along the sides of my foot. It seems when ever my feet are in a cool damp or cold floor, that sets off a cramp. I'm not sure if my feet are becoming cold first, then being in a cool area aggravates the condition more. The attacks are being more frequent, and limiting my quality of life. I have problems with potassium (I take a potassium supplements) and I have Spinal Steno sis.
Avatar f tn I get charlie horses in my leg all the time. Best thing to do is put your bare foot on a cold surface. It helps to relax the muscle and relieve the cramp.
Avatar n tn My mom says it's because I let her walk around the house bare foot. I have tile and the floor is cold. Maybe it's an old myth or something. She doesn't seem to complain about it during the day. It doesn't look swollen or red. She walks perfectly fine and runs around the house. I am worried. Could someone please help me?
Avatar m tn I have been getting horrible leg cramps at night that go away but if I put my foot on a certain position or are standing it comes back just not as pain full. Any advice?
Avatar n tn A few days ago I had a sensation of the floor vibrating under one foot. Since then I have realized it is my foot. It is felt in bloth feet, one at a time. Never both at the same time. I feel it when I am standing r walking. It is like an intermittent buzzing sensation. It comes in short bursts on after the other then stops. It will happen when walking and I will feel it with every third or fourth step. What could be the cause?
Avatar f tn Im 27 weeks so far and i been getting the worst leg cramps in the middle of the night, anyone knows some tricks to help not get them
Avatar f tn I am 24 weeks pregnant and I wake up in the middle of the night screaming in pain. I have right lower leg cramps. Someone told me to stand up against the wall barefoot on a cold floor which actually worked for me. Also, drink the juice of olives in the can or pickles. I haven't tried that but I heard it works fast.
Avatar m tn Having the copies also makes it faster and easier to get other opinions. Cramps and the feeling cold could also indicate a vitamin or mineral level being too have blood labs done too.
Avatar n tn I took off my boots and curled my foot. My foot cramped up and I was in a good deal of pain and was unable to straighten my foot. Also at around the same age, every so often I would arrive at school and would be unable to hold a pencil with enough of a grip to write. For quite a few years the cramps were limited to my feet and calf. I could cramp them at will my curling my foot or contracting my calf muscle. Over time the cramps started to cause problems in other parts of my body.

434240 tn?1216395670 I will try anything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! For the last few nights, I have been getting the most painful cramps in my calves when I sleep, that I wake up crying out in pain!!! I had been told before that it is a lack of calcium that causes this, but I have increased my calcium at lot since I hit the 3rd tri. and was told the baby needs more calcium now to develop stronger bones!!

3211536 tn?1359389169 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.
Avatar m tn The various causes of foot cramps or tightening or painful contraction in the middle of foot are an over exerted foot poor foot circulation, lack of potassium, dehydration, pinched nerves due to electrical impulse from brain not reaching the muscles, alcohol or tobacco use, nutritional deficiency, etc. sciatica has been the previous culprit causing pain in back and thigh and leg cramps. This could be pinched nerve in the leg or foot.
Avatar f tn If you aren't getting enough electrolytes in your diet, like sodium, potassium and magnesium, that can also cause foot cramps. Shoes that don't offer support for your arches or don't fit right can also be the problem. If you get a cramp while exercising, stop what you are doing and rest. Remove your shoes, and stretch and massage your feet until the cramps go away. Drinking water or a sports drink enhanced with electrolytes can also help.
Avatar f tn I am having reverse cramps in my right foot. I have been really suseptible to charlie horse type cramps in 2 different areas of my feet for years. Since last night, my foot cramp under the two littlest toes has been going off like crazy and when I try to pull my toes up to release the cramp, the other cramp under my big toes goes off. WTF am I supposed to do with that one???

Avatar n tn Hello Dear, The cause of pain,cramps are the herniated discs. Treatment options are geared toward pain relief. Pain medications such as NSAIDs, corticosteroids orally or injected, anti-spasm drugs, anti-convulsants to help with the burning pain, and in some cases, narcotic pain relievers are given. You should go in for Physical therapy such as hydrotherapy, massage, and hot/cold therapy.
175662 tn?1282217256 For the last 2 days I've had a horrible cramping in my lower left leg. So severe that it effects my knee and ankle and walking. I've tried heat, I've tried cold, I've tried Tylenol, I've tried elevating, stretching, massaging (which is painful) and everything in between. But it won't go away. I don't want to harass my doctor but I swear this pregnancy has been so much harder than my other 2! I didn't have these kinds of problems with my daughters. I just don't know what to do anymore....
Avatar f tn hope u can help feet keep going icy cold then i end up with painful foot cramps,my feet become twisted and i cant move them till the cramps have subsided.this is happening quite a lot and its that painful it reduces me to tears.many thanks.
1068422 tn?1293687853 I get those kind of toe cramps, and I also get ones that cause my big toe to spread away from the second toe. It looks like it's making a "V". Sometimes they're painful, other times it's not. When it's not painful, I get a pulling sensation on the top of my foot. But I can't feel my feet half the time anyways, so they're probably all painful. I just feel some, and don't feel others.
Avatar f tn I put the arch of my foot on something cold. I keep our glass water change bottle next to the bed. Instant relief. I've done this will all of my pregnancies. And eat bananas.
723685 tn?1267050295 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 3.0 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?
Avatar n tn 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 !
11079760 tn?1483389730 Hi friends, I'm curious what non-prescription options exist to help with muscle spasms. I'm having a terrible time with the arch of my right foot, the inside of my right ankle/calf, and weirdly the back of my left arm (tricep area). I will try some Aleve (naproxyn) in hopes I can sleep tonight. Thanks for sharing what has worked for you.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar m tn Is it better to cold turkey or to taper off? (burn out or fade away...) I have been taking any type of opiate, up to 10 - 10s a day, but lately whatever i can manage to get, usually 5-6 a day, and mostly from the street, with an occasional script here and there. I recently was put on supervised probation, and have to attend classes 3xs a week. 8wks ago i tore ligaments in my foot and ankle, so as long as i have a valid script, i get in no trouble. BUT - I'm tired.
Avatar n tn Help. I have been having a sharp shooting pain in my right foot for a couple of months. At first it was every couple of weeks. The last few days it has been about 3 times a day. When it occurs it seems like it is towards the top of my foot in the middle and last about 15 seconds. It is a pain that makes me stop whatever I am doing because it hurts so bad. It almost reminds me of a charlie horse but it feels like it is in my bone not my muscle.
