Sudden rigid tendon in toe

This past year there have been at least 5 instances when my 2nd toe would suddenly "contract" and I could feel the tendon throughout the foot and toe get extremely tight. It was very painful and my toe looked 'bone' straight--almost as the the toe was trying to arch the other way. A couple times this happened after I put an odd amount of pressure on a certain part of the bottom of my foot. Just last night, however, I was laying in bed and this happened with my big toe. The entire toe tensed up and was perfectly straight--the joint was contracting downward. This caused great amounts of pain through even my lower ankle area. I looked up info on it, and nothing seems to fit my random occuring symptoms. I thought I would see if anyone had any ideas, though. Thanks.
