Muscle spasms: I am assuming that the cramps you are describing are leg cramps. The large muscles in the legs experience pain when the muscles contract and don't let go, causing pain that can shoot down your legs. This can be a sign of poor circulation, abnormal salts (especially potassium, magnesium, or calcium), and should be evaluated by your primary physician. Good luck! ...Read more

From your description, your peripheral neuropathy is likely the culprit for your pain and cramps in your feet, and i cannot exclude superimposed tarsal tunnel syndrome. However, nerve pathology is likely the cause of your symptoms. Other than baclofen, you are not taking the usual nerve pain suppressant meds, and I am unclear re the cause of your nerve problem. ...Read more

Iam i pregnant i missed last month periode n i tke birth controll today i was supposed to get my periode n didn't come but I have been still taking birth controll n i get cramps n my feet hurt n i feel uneven of balance
I : I am not sure that i understand the situation that you have described. I believe you are indicating that you have just missed your second menstrual cycle in a row. I am unable to determine if you took all your birth control pills as prescribed. You now have cramps in your feet and feel off balance. I hope i understood correctly. Those don't sound like typical pregnancy symptoms. Pregnancy symptoms early on can include: lack of a period, feeling tired, nausea, food cravings, urinating more often, swollen or tender breasts. As i read this again, it may be that you are having some mild abdominal cramping (which can occur in early pregnancy) and your feet hurt. Recommend taking a pregnancy test if you have not been getting your period. You may need to speak with your doctor about feel off balance. Good luck. ...Read more
