Foot Cramps and Other Muscle Spasms
I used to get these several times a week… but as of late, I haven’t missed them.
Tonight – it came on, out of no where. I haven’t been straining, or walking or standing, my boots don’t have a high heel… I’ve drunk tons of water (with apple cider vinegar, mind you!)
But suddenly my toes were in an involuntary vice…
That I couldn’t shut off.
Nothing gets you up from the computer faster than a foot cramp like that…
I know it has something to do with cross contamination, and vitamin deficiency. I know it can be signs of other auto immune diseases.
I won’t speculate what those might be…
I’ve always had these, my oldest son also gets them… and has since he could tell me about them.
I was getting more in my calf and sides/stomach earlier this year… most of that has subsided. I’ve had maybe one or two of each since May (I went gluten-free mid-April). vs. several a week.
Since I’ve been off of the coffee for over a week, and the uveitis is still here… I’m really hoping the inflammatory goes bye-bye just as quickly as it showed up UNinvited.
Take a hike foot cramps! See you later uveitis! This mom has a busy weekend and no time for you!
What about you? Any funny stories of foot cramps or muscles spasms?
(NOT that they’re funny, we know they’re nothing to laugh at – but it is helpful to share so others don’t feel alone!)
My mom shared a video, a friend of hers with MS has of her toes cramping – and I just shouted – YES! YES! That’s exactly what it’s like. HORRID, uncontrollable pain. Your body takes on a mind of it’s own! Usually they only last 10-15 minutes… if you can get it to relax. Sometimes that’s easier said that done!
“The LORD is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I
take refuge. He is my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.”
