    Hey guys. I've been getting really bad cramps in my foot nearly every day, and they last for about ten minutes til they subside on their own accord. Does anyone know why this may be (some sort of deficiency in my diet or something) or a fool proof way of getting rid of them quickly? Nothing is working at the moment, and they are occurring at the most inopportune moments.

    Thank you in advance

    I get this sometimes. I'll go months without cramp and then get a bout of regular cramps for a couple of weeks. Maybe it's a pair of shoes you're wearing that's putting your feet out of shape? I suspect, in my case, that it's a result of my feet being cold due to not wearing socks and having tiled / wooden floor, so maybe keep your feet warm.

    I get awful foot cramps along with period pain, right in the middle of my foot. Some weird reflexology thing? No idea. But try calcium/magnesium/etc. Maybe your feet are tense, having a warm bath could help.

    You're very welcome! (And don't you worry, it's worth 6 now ).

    I heard about them just the other week actually, I took them during that time of the month when I usually get appalling cramps and they really helped!!
