What does it mean when my foot cramps when I bend my toes? Also the pain gets worse the longer my toes are bent.

Cramps: Cramping in the foot can be as simple as biomechanical dysfunction which causes muscles/tendons to work harder, thus causing strain and fatigue. Try some good supportive shoes and orthotics and see if correcting your foot position and alignment might correct the muscle strain and fatigue that is causing your cramps. If not, get checked out by a physician for possible neuromuscular problems

Hydrate: Foot cramps are common and over 65, many cramping episodes can be prevented by ensuring adequate hydration either with water alone or mixed with a mild electrolyte beverage like Gatorade, which has some sodium and potassium in it. If your stools are regular you can add a magnesium supplement for a short time. Lastly, shoes with good arch support, mild heat and local massage to the area may help.
