Severe foot cramps treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Severe foot cramps treatment


Avatar f tn I've begun having severe muscle cramps in the arches of both feet, real toe-crossing cramps. I can usually massage them away (sometimes it takes a long time). I'll get them on and off for an hour or so before I can really get the foot relaxed. Anyone else have this?
Avatar n tn I have been getting severe cramping in my right hand and foot when I stand up or change positions. There is a slight tingling in my right leg and then I have to stand still while the cramp happens. Lasts only 15-20 seconds. Am seeing a neurologist. He did an EMG, results were normal. Blood tests for potassium, thyroid all OK. I have been on 3 medications so far (Buspar, neurontin, & an anti-depressant) and no change in symptoms.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn I have searched for "severe leg cramps" before and never found anything until I added "severe inner thigh cramps" and found all these interesting tips on this page. It made me realize I've been having these for about the same length of time I've been on triamterine! I now have new ammunition when I return to my doctor. She didn't have a clue when I explained the symptoms (same as Lynn and Penmarko).
Avatar m tn 75 the next. i did this for 60 days and felt pretty good, i had leg cramps but not as severe as now. i am back up to .75 because of my lab test showing me to have very high numbers. its pretty much just my right leg cramping , you can actually see the muscle tighten up starting at my lower calve and climb right up yo my knee. my foot contorts and stays like that for a few minutes , its unbelievably painful. what should i change, I'm willing to do anything .
Avatar m tn 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.
529159 tn?1224994626 To my extreme delight, doing this immediately cut down on my night-time leg and foot cramps by about 95% and, with the other 5%, the cramps were either milder or began gradually enough that I had time to deal with them before they intensified. Twice over the last two weeks, when I've been rudely awakened by severe leg cramps, I discovered each time that I had forgotten to put the bar of soap under the covers before I went to bed.
Avatar f tn The cramps are either very strong or weak but repeated (I can have cramps on both legs at the same time). Foot cramps can get to 15 cramps on a row. L-carnitine had effect for one or two weeks but then came back to the same.Is this a muscle metabolic disorder? Should I look for other causes?
Avatar m tn As far as I know I am not diabetic but for the past three or so years I've been getting these lower leg foot and toe cramps while I sleep. Sometimes I can do an opposite stretch while still in bed and that will make the cramp go away and other times I have to get up and walk around the bedroom. The toe cramps are the worst. My big toe will spread away from the other toes and then go back toward my shins and I have to use my hand to push it back to position.
Avatar m tn i had major foot painprior to treatment..
Avatar n tn Now I'm taking beta blockers (Propranolol) to keep my heart palpitations under control until the nodule shrinks (I just underwent RAI - radioiodine treatment - the vibrating foot was there before the treatment). Anyway, that is all I have.. of course, the sensation is driving me crazy and scares me to death... (I've had enough being sick!!) Anybody else in a similar situation??
Avatar n tn Can Hepatitis C cause severe leg cramps at night and if so what vitamin or over the counter medicine can help this? We are currently taking Milkthistle 2000 mgs a day.
Avatar f tn I had a lot of leg cramps on treatment. They got pretty severe but I never found a good solution for them. Drinking a lot of water was always my doctor's answer, but I suppose, as cando says, you might end up short on potassium.
3211536 tn?1359389169 I am very are sorry you are experiencing it now. It is very painful. I have awakened many nights will severe leg cramps. Excruciating. The main issue you haveā€¦ is not leg cramps. The reason you have leg cramps is poor medical care and poor monitoring of your response to treatment. Until you solve that, you will continue to experience complications of cirrhosis do to improper treatment and management.
1182479 tn?1273376014 05, just one hour to go before i would have gotten up anyway, I have been sitting here crying like a baby, not with the pain so much, though that is sure bad enough, but just through sheer frustration, of not being able to do anything about it, I have paced the floor most of the night trying to keep the spasms or cramps, out of my foot, The cramp or spasm whatever it is in my left hand, has not cleared for over an hour, and the finger seems to be stuck at the pulled down position and the pa
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 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.
Avatar m tn 5 hrs after eating junk food my legs and feet start fasiculating, then i know im in trouble about 20 min after that i start with severe leg cramps. it will be calves, anterior and lateral and of course posterior aspects of lower legs and sometimes up the interior aspect up my mostly right thigh, you talk about pain full it is a 10 on the rictor scale. sometimes my toes will cramp so bad i have to step on my foot with my other foot to straighten it out.
Avatar n tn MRI results showed moderate herniation at L4/5 with severe narrowing. Doctors believe this stenosis could be causing the twithcing, spasms and cramps in both my legs. I am still concerned about things like MS or Parkinsons. I have an occassional twitch in my arm muscles but nothing like my legs. These mostly appear in my bicept and elbow. Should I be worried about these other diseases and ask for a work up for MS as well? Thanks for you help.
Avatar n tn Again, same thing, plus it seemed to stop working and also gave me muscle cramps in my legs. Then she had me to try Cymbalta. I got severe dizziness from it too. Finally, she tried Xanax but because I didn't want to take 2-3 pills a day, she eventually switched me to Klonopin. I know, it is a benzo and people frown on taking them. But Klonopin was a life saver for me. I take only one .5 a day (actually I cut it in half; 1/2 in the morning, 1/2 at night).
Avatar n tn For the past 2 days, I've had this constant buzzing sensation in my left foot. It comes and goes every 6 seconds. However, when I walk, and when I do other activities that require a lot of attention, the sensation disappears. I seem to be getting different sensations, all paresthesia, that come and go every couple of weeks. During these periods, I also get anxious, so I'm not sure if its anxiety or the paresthesia that's the cause. What could this be?
Avatar n tn The over-the-counter regimens that you describe usually work. Failure to respond to symptomatic treatment, persistence of iarhea or blood in the stool are indications for investigation. Risk factors such as foreign travel exposure to others with diarrhea, antibiotic use, will influence the timing and extent of the evaluation. Initially, stool cultures are done. A flexible sigmoidoscopy is sometimes done if the diarrhea persists and the cultures are negative.
Avatar m tn A severe lack of vitamin d can cause horrid cramps. It can cause many bone pain issues too. I would advise getting your vitamin d checked.
Avatar f tn Sometimes, it's nearly impossible to flex my foot back up. Last night I braced my foot against the wall next to my bed and literally forced the joint to bed and I saw stars and passed right out. When I came to, I was drenched in sweat, felt like a freight train had passed through my head and my leg felt like it had been torched! I fell right back to sleep within minutes as though I hadn't slept in a week and now my leg just feels pulled and sore. What could be the cause?
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 !
Avatar m tn Anyone taking the Sovaldi and having severe leg cramps should ask their physician about the use of Clonazepam to treat their leg cramps.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn I am not overweight, I work out regularly, eat healthy, don't smoke. For the past 3 months I have been having severe swelling in my left foot and ankle. At times the swelling continues into my calf and causes a discomfort. I first noticed the swelling after I got home from the gym one evening. I took my shoe off and my foot was huge for no reason. I have not had any injuries, insect bites or infections.
