Thank you for coming back online.
The symptoms you have described of having feet draw up especially at night is a very common symptom in old age.
The exact cause isn't known.Most common causes are:Low potassium levels,muscle overextension,dehydration,diabetes,neuro muscular disorders,excessive alcohol,peripheral vascular disease.unknown causes.
Following helps to relieve these symptoms:
- Stretching and massaging the affected muscle,
- Applying a cold pack to the affected muscle,
- Taking a hot bath
- Using a pillow to prop the feet up in bed while sleeping on your back,
- Supplementation with vitamin B12 & gabapentin.
- Also take potassium supplements.
The FDA has now approved ropinirole (Requip) and pramipexole (Mirapex) for the treatment of such symptoms & for restless leg syndrome.Electric nerve stimulation, oral magnesium, and acupuncture will also be helpful.
So my best advise for you is to make an appointment with your doctor & then treatment as described above will be done accordingly.
Hope this helped.
