stinging muscle spasms on top of foot

Please help. I have been having extremely painful stinging pains on the top of my right foot all evening. They are very brief but feel like some kind of spasm. It is like it throbs for 4 or 5 times and the pain is almost unbearable and then it goes away for a while. Then all of a sudden it comes back.

I can't imagine what this is and I can't find a lot on it on the internet. I don't know whether to call it a spasm since I don't know if it is actually a muscle in my foot or if it is something else.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Lynne

Hi,
Sounds like they may be nerve pains but I am no expert

Thanks Pat. I am beginning to think that is it. Friend is a nurse and she hasn't got an idea on what it is.

Thanks.

Re: stinging muscle spasms on top of foot

I get this on top of my foot down to my big toes. Mine is caused by irritated herniated discs in my back. I hope that's not what's going on with you.
