Foot/Toe Spasms
Dear Dr., I've had ongoing foot/toe muscle spasms that last multiple hours each night.  The spasms are mostly in my toes, but I also get them on the top and bottom arch of my feet.

Also, I recently noticed bunions on both sides of my feet, slight swelling, and my toenails are brittle with white lines on them (not sure if these symptoms could be related to the spasms).

Any suggestions what could be causing these foot spasms?   Potassium, Vit D, Calc, Zinc, Magnesium tested normal.

if you are on your feet often, the muscles fatigue and can spasm .  wearing supportive shoes and orthotics can help help the overworking foot muscles.  toe curl exercises (grasping towel with your toes) can help.  soaking your feet nightly in warm water in a vibrating foot bath can help soothe the feet muscles.  dehydration can also lead to spasms and brittle nails.  make sure you are consuming 8 glasses of non-caffeinated liquids daily.
