Ack. Toe and foot cramping [Aug. 7th, 2007|07:49 pm]
Lanette
[Current Mood |Crabby and Gimpy]

I'm having some weird results from overworking my body. My left foot will not stop cramping, specifically my middle three toes. I've tried stretching but they are charlie horsing.

Any ideas of how to get them to STOP? Hot bath? Shots of Vodka? I'm getting desperate over here.

I know why it's going on. I've done some sort of physical activity every day since Saturday in a row, which is good. Plus I danced hard yesterday for 2 hours, then went home and packed. I'm officially taking tonight OFF of doing physical work.

I think that potassium levels may be to blame

eat a banana or take some potassium. it helps with feet too, not just legs.

the main reason for cramping is usually dehydration. are you drinking enough extra water to compensate for the additional physical activity?

Yep! I drank so much water that I ran out and have to get another water filter.

My feet feel better today. I took an extra vitamin and drank several extra waters just in case.
