Cramping can be due to using muscles that you don't normally use. Sometime from doing activity that uses the small muscles in the foot not used in daily activity. It could also be due to dehydration, an imbalance of potassium/sodium, response to prescription medications... as well as many other causes. I would suggest further work-up.

Circulation

Sounds like you are putting pressure on an artery that supplies your foot or possibly a nerve.

Dr. Oliver Wang answered:

toe cramping causes?

Lack of support

Flatfoot
toe cramping is a sign of muscle fatigue. If you have flat feet or lack of support in your shoes you may be experiencing this. Best to stretch your toes and calf muscles and try otc superfeet inserts in your shoes. if not improved you may need a more custom device. Also make sure your electrolytes are in balance.

Dr. Ann Holland answered:

Why do my toes cramp all the time?

Toe Spasms, Chronic

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
There are many causes of toe cramping: muscle spasms, nutrition deficiencies, neuropathy, poor circulation, and medication side effects. You need an exam by podiatrist and vascular specialist to rule out arterial insufficiency and nerve disease. If you smoke you should quit immediately. Smoking can directly affect blood flow to the toes. Long-term smoking causes permanent damage to arteries.
