    Nocturnal muscle cramps in the toes, feet, calves, and hamstrings are extremely common, and unfortunately get more common as we...gasp..age! Unfortunately, the best and only treatment known for this is quinine, which the FDA in its wisdom has removed from the market (at least the generics) I think due to its low cost (read sarcastically please). You can get "Brand" quinine now for about 400 times the cost.

    I don't get them in my toes, which is good, because I do get them in my arches and my toes are instrumental in relieving the Charley Horse!

    Yes, when I don't get alot of sleep (that's about 2 weeks a month), I get them. I also get charley horses in my upper right thigh around the femoral artery area. That is the worst, since nothing really helps get rid of it.

    NO, and if you do, you'd better go see a doctor. :)

    Try and avoid stretching your toes and switch to a fortified milk that should help. If not let me know.

    I don't drink milk...lactose intolerant. Try to get it through other sources.

    Join the club, not that I'm totally lactose intolerant. As A child I would drink just about any milk, 2%, nonfat, butter, skim. I drank them all. At around age 30, I just stopped. Now unless I get a craving for it, I won't drink it. If I drink it w/o the craving, I have to take acid reflux meds. But with the craving, I have to have chocolate and cookies with it.

    I will VERY highly recommend Puritan's Pride - This is their ad. The #1 Direct-to-You Vitamin Manufacturer
    Leader in Quality and Service for 40 Years
    1-800-645-1030
    www.Puritan.com

    My Mother started me on their supplements when I was in college doing a graduate study. My husband and I have used them ever since. When I was sick last year and they THOUGHT I was dying, I WAS NOT!, my hair and finger nails feel out - broke off and pealed to nothing. I've always had wonderful thick healthy hair and long thick nails. I started taking their Hair and nail supplement and after a year of nails splitting both ways pealing to the quick and bleeding and hair breaking and not growing and being dull, they started growing back out great. I use several of there products in addition to this with great results. ALL Women over 35 ought to be taking the chelated calcium & magnesium, and the senior mega vita min (Preach Baby Preach!)Chelated basically means "firmly attached", usually to an amino acid or other organic component so that the two do not disassociate in the digestive system. So If you would bring their products up on line there would be something like Taurine etc that would help.

    Boy! have I ever gotten charley horses in my big toes! I sometimes get them while I am driving and that is pure torture. Many times they hit me when I am unable to pull of the side of the road at the moment. What makes it so bad is when it happens to my right foot because with my left I can at least slip my shoe off and try to hold it down.

    My doctor recommended calcium also. I'm not sure if it's that or icing my feet down, but I haven't had any for a while.

    I haven't found the pattern to it. I know I can't be on my feet for a long period of time. I'm relatively okay until I sit down. Then when I try to get up and walk I can barely put pressure on my feet. At least that's how it was. I just happened on this ice thing recently. Since then they've been much better. Not normal, but I can live with it.

    Quinine works as well and you can get it in Mexico or the internet or in drug stores like CVS that sell it on the Mexican IMPORT shelves medications like Merthiolate which the FDA in all their wisdom pulled. Gezz and crackers those guys brains are in their noses and they blow them out hourly (their brains) The NOT stretching helps AND PRESSING your finger across UNDER YOUR NOSE where you would have a moustache hard will stop them. I do not like to take any more medication like Quinine than I already do so I try supplements first.

    Yes, I have something called peripheral neuropathy, and my toes used to cramp a lot. I've been putting ice packs on my feet to try to help the symptoms of PN, and it seems like I haven't had toe cramps. You might try it. It doesn't seem like it would work, but it does. They're awful though.
  • chilton~T~ magmeis... 2007/09/20 04:19:23

    I don't have this problem so much now that I take Neuronton. I was talking to Rain about this at my house yesterday. I'll remember the ice packs for my husband, though. He gets thigh-horses...thanks!

    My dad used to take Quinine (sp?) pills which help with cramps in legs and toes.

    I tried Neuronton which worked beautifully when I first took it, then after 2 weeks it just stopped, didn't help at all. I used to drink Quinine for leg cramps. Now I eat a banana every day plus I take calcium and don't seem to have those much.

    I have been diagnosed with the same problem. I take medication which seems to help some in pn. Next time I will try the ice packs and see if they work. Thanks!

    This evening my feet were really bothering me. I got some ice, put it on the bottoms of my feet and after just a few minutes they were pretty good. I very often will have to get up after I've tried to get to sleep and just can't because they're hurting, burning, etc. I get the ice pack out and cool down my feet and I can get to sleep. I had thought about getting more medications, Neuronton didn't work, but since I've found that the ice works I may just stick with that. I'm not saying I'm pain free, but the ice makes it quite bearable. I'd rather not take meds if I can get away without them.

    I've gotten cramps in my legs, but never in my toes.
