When I cramp by left foot and twist it right and left, it feels like tingling nerves from my calf to my big toe. And the big toe is painful when I cramp it. The sensation also comes in the nignt and during the daytime.
Is this symptomatic of neuropathy (or a pionched nerve in my lower spine are? Please give me your comment.

  • Hi, Robert - - I have a similar problem, i.e. the pain is in both thighs. The doctor looked at my feet and ankles, said, they would be if it were peripheral arterial neuropathy then sent me for x-ray of lower spine, and apparently, there's some arthritis (not too unusual, she says, at age 73!). :D . She implied, "you just have to live with it" - - - You should probably see a neurologists.
