: I've been having foot cramps on the tops of my feet. Usually in the evening and not following any excercise. I'll just be laying on the couch or sleeping and move my feet around and get a cramp that runs from the slits of my toes, up the top of my foot to just above where my ankle meets my foot. I got the same cramps when i was pregnant many years ago, i know for a fact i'm not pregnant. It also causes my toes to almost freeze or become paralized and bent or "clawlike". Just wondering what i can do to relieve the cramp since it's on the top of the foot where it's not fleshy to really massage. someone suggested taking an asprin every day to relax the muscles.
