muscle spasms at night in feet
For a long time now I have been having muscle spasms in my feet at night. The spasms wake me up so that I have to walk them off. To remedy this, I started taking 300 mg of magnesium in the morning and at night. This helped the night spasm problems BUT in yoga class, now I get foot spasms!
To top it off, when I wake up in the morning and if I lie down during the day, the bottom of my feet really hurt for the first few steps. After walking just a bit, this pain goes away. I thought taking calcium with vitamin D would fix it, but it has not.
Any idea about (1) nightly foot muscle spasms and/or painful bottom of feet after lying down?
I have had bad lower back problems from a fall on the ice in March 2011, abaout 4.5 months ago. Am working on the lower back pain with chiropractor, massage and yoga.
But what about foot muscle spasms at night and hurting feet after lying down?
