Do massage, do dorsiflex ( toes tip up) and take some pain medication such as Ibuprofen if you are not allergic. To prevent it to happen again, never stretch your foot with toe tip downward.

they say potassium and electrolyte imbalance causes this sometimes. I would try eating a banana which is a good source of potassium and see if this helps. You migt also try gatorade or any drink with salt and electrolytes in it.

I have been getting severe cramps back of thighs, leg falling asleep when sitting for a little while along with foot swelling ony left leg?

Discuss with your MD

Foot_swelling
All of these symptoms may be local musculo-skeletal problems but you need to talk to your doctor. Cramps could be an electrolyte disorder. One sided swelling could be venous insufficiency but it could be phlebitis. The leg falling asleep is most likely a compression of a nerve while you are asleep. However, you have a number of leg questions that requires someone seeing you personally.
