Toes curling under, extreme pain

Over the past 6 month I have benn getting toe and leg cramps. They are getting worse and extremely painful. My 2 middle toes move on their own when I am in bed or resting then start to turn under. My food follows twisting to the side then I get extreme pain up my calf. What is this. I have not told a doctor thinking it would go away

As JJ mentioned, we are an MS focused bunch :-)

If you are diagnosed with MS, or suspect it for other reasons, wha you describe can be spasticity, neuropathic pain or a combination of the two. Both can be MS related.

In any case I would suggest that you see your doctor.

I'll reiterate what Kyle and JJ said.  Go see your doctor if this continues.  He/she can run some blood tests to ensure you're not deficient minerals or vitamins ie:  Magnesium, Calcium, etc.  

If you're diagnosed with MS as Kyle says...etc.

Good luck
