Big Toe charlie horse

I frequently experience what I call a charlie horse in my big toes, causing the toes to bend upward at the base. Although I have them in both toes, the right is more common than the left (I have pins holding my left toe joint together, so it's extremely painful in that toe). This always happens during the night, several times a week, and sometimes repeatedly during the same night. I eat plenty f almonds and other nuts so my magnesium shouldn't be an issue. Thank you in advance for suggestions.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to predict the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities include joint dislocations, fractures, hardware issues, contractures, tendon/ muscle/ ligament issues, infections/ inflammations, arthritis, bursitis etc. It would be best to get this evaluated by an orthopedician for accurate diagnosis and appropriate management.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
