First, check your slippers if it is malformed or not to see if it's hurting your toes. Circulation of toes blood may be hampered causing all these pain symptoms. You need to wear leg compressors to tighten your legs and blood will flow to other parts.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, Question regarding cramping. im 37 yr old male, avid weightlifter/amateur bodybuilder. I experience cramps in my toes and abdominal region fairly often. The toe cramps arent painful and go away within 30 seconds. The lower ab and oblique cramps feel like a golfball sized compact tightening of the muscles and can be brought on by simple act such as twisting and turning during normal daily activities. They can last up to a minute or two and leave me writhing around trying to get it to unclentch. I try to drink at least a gallon of water a day due to the vitamins and legal supplements I take. Aside from water and bananas and not overtraining my stomach muscles, what can I do to mitigate these cramps. Thanks for your help
