Discussions that mention potassium

Back Problems board

I have extensive back problems on many levels. Something that has been happening to me the last few years is severe cramping of my feet. My toes contract and twist and spread out. Sometimes the whole foot is involved. Both feet can be involved at the same time. This usually happens at rest when watching TV or sleeping. I don't have a potassium shortage so it isn't that. My family doctor thinks it is due to the problems in my spine. Anyone else experiencing this.

Thanks :p
