lcunliffegizmo123,

I used to get cramp in my calves followed by toes crossing over and going into cramps. So painful, I had to stamp on the toes with my heel to flatten them. I found adding 1/4 tsp salt to a glass of water 2-3 times a day for a few days stopped the cramps and curling toes.

Me neither, and that was causing the trouble particularly in hot weather.

Hi I wonder if your potassium levels are down, eat bananas and avocados every day, keep your fluid levels up, especially if the weather has been hot, salt in small amounts in the diet are needed and check your magnesium levels
