This may sound silly, but to me it really is becoming an issue. My feet cramp. Now from most the reply would be that I'm a big baby and everyone gets muscle cramps. These are not your ordinary cramps. My feet cramp so bad I an unable to do anything besides sqwat and put pressure on the balls of my feet or bend my toes back toward my calves to get relief. They are so bad sometimes I can't even walk. I try and try to stand up and move around the room but it's nearly impossible. Every time I try to stand up they cramp and I find myself swatting in the floor bawling my eyes out. Lately the cramps have been accompanied with numbness and pain up my legs, not to mention a strange crawling feeling on my feet. I had a bad spell last night and my feet cramped most of the night. My husband had to carry me to where I needed to go because I could not walk . It's embarassing to be temporarily crippled by something as small as a muscle cramp. Today my feet hurt and keep trying to cramp, my legs ache and as I sit here I am on the verge of tears. When I walk it feels as if my feet have no tissue and I am walking on bare bones. I've also had numbness in my hands and they quite frequently feel as if they are dislocated, but this is not nearly as big an issue as my feet. I have no idea what doctor to go to. I have other minor health issues such as migraines, chronic dizziness, low blood sugar and low back pain. I am in fear that there is a underlying cause for all of these issues, but I don't even know what doctor to start with!! Any any any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks, Misty PS...I've researched foot cramps. I've tried magnisum, calcium, potassium, natural tonics, warm baths, muscle rubs and etc etc... nothing helps.View Thread
