Sometimes my feet clench/seize up and it really hurts - what causes this?
There is a sharp pain along the arches on the bottom of my feet and my toes curl themselves. It basically feels as if my foot is trying to bend itself in half but can't manage it.
Usually this happens of its own accord, but sometimes I can bring it on myself, by clenching my feet tight.
I can relieve the pain by grabbing my toes and bending them backwards. If I let go, it hurts again. I need to hold my toes backwards untill it has gone away.

What causes this? Is it a muscle spasm or something? I've lived with it for years, it doesn't happen very often, but I'd like to know what it is and if there's any cure.

Ask your Doctor, that's what they are there for!

majella g
it sounds like you have a condition called plantar fachaitis
common in people who are on there feet alot
i suggest you go to your gp and get a ref to an intermediate musculosketal service

ohh i get those too, hurts like hell!

muscular spasm. it is known as cramp, and yes it hurts but there are worse pains i can assure you lol.

letem haveit
Cramps. Very difficult to figure out why. It's brought on by different things in different people. Sometimes dehydration. Other times is a vitamin or mineral deficiency. ??

it's cramp.

Get moving, get stretching, get the blood pumping, before you get an episode of cramp. Keep the muscle warm as well. Sometimes you can feel the danger of one and back away from it before it happens.. I sometimes get something similar in the calf muscle but by getting more active I stopped that happening.

Get a bicycle and use it daily; not aggressively, just enough to keep the blood pumping.

Drink Dill Pickle Juice Out Of The Jar,It works Almost Immediately,A Little A Day Will Keep This From Happening..Really Will Work...

Check out the types of shoes you're wearing when it happens. Women tend it get this when they wear high heels/stillettos-for men, it could be shoes that don't provide enough arch support. Get in the habit of stretching your feet and toes at the end of the day too...

Mine just did that last Friday it does hurt really bad... but i have no clue what causes it... I would like to know too.

This does sound like cramps, and as some people have said changing your diet will help with circulation, you could also try odorless garlic capsules which will help, there are also Red Maple Leaf tablets which are very good but are also expensive. Good luck whatever you try i know what it feels like and Garlic caps seems to do the trick for me.

Its cramp. I get it and my toes go every which way! lol
There are medications which help, some are precsription meds but there are some over the counter meds available.
My own personal remedy (NOT evaluated by the medical profession...yet!) Cut down on salt, walk lots and drink a large glass of tonic water (with quinine, not quinine free) before bed every night. When I do get an attack I stand on tip toes until the worst of it is over then walk a little until I can feel the muscles relax.

domme me
sounds like cramp.
try less salt in your diet, or try to use lo sodium salt (with a higher pottasium content) drink more water, especially close to bedtime

Definately a foot cramp. Feels like a huge animal has chomped down and your foot curls up from the inside out! Just be thankful its not a charley horse in your calf!

They are extremely painful and I get them when I wear high heels or even wearing boots. Best thing is when you've been on your feet a lot or you've identified the trigger (as in my types of shoes for me) then when you get home, take off the shoes, and have a nice warm bath or soak your feet. If you can't do this then get some body lotion and rub onto your feet massaging them. Prevention is the key. Get your feet to relax.

Hint: If you have a partner, take a bath (so your feet are clean and not smelly) and them ask them very nicely if they'd massage your feet. You might have to promise them a back rub or something but both are nice to give and receive and other fun might ensue!

Good luck in whatever you try. Cramps are NO fun. *S*

Hi, it soundslike foot cramps .... this could be because of bad circulation, you need to do certain foot exercises to help circulation ,when you are sat with your feet up circle them at the ankles every night for a while and this could help. Otherwise visit your docs and explain as it could be somethign worse like DVT which is usually the legs etc!!

Muscle spasm which could be caused by a variety of things. Dehydration, potassium deficiency, even tension (stress), too much water, etc, etc.

Warming and stretching (in that order) the muscles can help keep them supple.

take a potassium supplement. Eat more bananas.

Sounds like a muscle cramp. That's basically a sustained spasm. They are very common in your feet and calves. It can really hurt, and feel like the muscle is "locking up."

Lots of things can bring them on, including heavy exercise and deficiencies in diet.

When I have had problems, I looked to increase sodium and potassium in my diet. Scarf more bananas, and the salt is easy to come by from any source...
