I've Been Getting Muscle Spasms In My Back And Legs Lately...is It Possible To Get Spasms In Your Toes??

My middle toe and and the one next to it have been curling down, getting stuck like that and hurts like hell!!! Trying to figure out what's going on now?

I've had those painful toe cramps in the past too.

Just by accident, I found that if I stand and put all my weight on the "heel" of that foot, it stops the cramp immediately.

Hope that works for you and helps in the meantime while you get your vitamins balanced. I'm taking Magnesium, Calcium and Vitamin D, and I haven't had the cramps in a long time.

Lisa, your spasms could easily be MS. Make sure, however, that you're getting enough magnesium and potassium in your diet, especially if you sweat a lot. Deficiencies can wreak havoc with your muscles. btw, when my toes spasm I physically bend them back the other way by either using my hands or stepping down on them.

I have had muscle spasms in my toes for years. It used to be from the heels I was wearing but no high heels now! My husband , who does not have ms but gets toe spasms, taught me to wrap a warm towel around my toes. Although it could be a ms symptom, I think it is just something that occurs in the general population.
