Hi, I have been having severe cramping and numbness on my last three toes of my left foot. I have had x-rays for fractures etc and everything is coming up clear. No matter what shoes, either high heels or flat that I wear, after walking about 200 metres I can hardly walk anymore because of the pain and crampy feeling.

  • Maybe your potassium levels are low. How old are you. Eat all the foods with high content and see if that helps. When I point my toe, and it cramps, I know it's time to take a prescribed potassium pill. If I don't I will start getting leg cramps.Sometimes docs are averse to prescribing this, as too much is dangerous cardiac-wise. Sometimes you have to insist. Most docs will have free samples of this stuff at the office and could give you a couple. Or, you have a claudication of one of the blood vessels in your foot. Do you have good pulses in your feet? Look up the pedal pulse points.
