Quote from cardinal:
Do you think all these toe cramps are nerve related to my back issues? They wake me up at night and it sure is a pain when you're driving and your leg or foot locks up with cramp. :confused:

I am sorry for your pain-and it probably is nerve related-but you could try to add some x-tra potassium in your diet by eating a banana, spinach, prunes-or even supplements-sometimes my clients get these cramps, and I have had them add the potassium, and it does help-although they do not have your problems-but it's worth a try right? again i am so sorry. :) Deidre
