Toe Cramps

Many of us have experienced cramps in our legs and feet. But, when those cramps work their way down to our toes, they can be incredibly painful. A toe cramp can make you feel like your feet and/or toes are in a vice. Most muscle cramps are harmless, but when they tighten and pull, it can feel like an emergency.
 
If your foot is cramping, try stretching, or massaging it slowly. When stretching the toe, do not pull the toe in a jerking motion. That could cause a muscle injury. Instead, try slowly pulling your toe to stretch it, or massage your foot by gently rolling it over a round object like a golf ball.
 
Remember that dehydration isn’t the only thing linked to muscle cramps, or spasm – low electrolytes and nutrients are, too. So, try to get your electrolyte levels up by eating a quick snack, Specifically, eating a banana would be a good choice.
