Does anyone else have toe cramping?

When medication starts to wear off my big toe feels like the circulation is being cut off. I take meds every 3 1/2 hr. It helps most of the time. Night time seems worst.

    I agree with Dan. I don’t feel the need too hide the fact that I have Parkinson’s. I want people to know I’m hear to fight it. If we let others know, we can all fight it together.

    My foot gets some weird cramping issues with dystonia. It feels like my toes get stuck at a 90° angle down and it feels like pressure is on my top of my foot near the bottom of the leg. I also feel like my toes feel weird (maybe similar to what you describe). I get a lot of my dystonia info from a facebook site called
    #nevergiveup parkinson’s and dystonia

    I find a lot of people there understand more than I have experience to describe.

    That said, I’m just a patient, not a doc, so please check with yours.

    PS – you need the # in that name to find the group.

    Great question, @perry336! While we wait for others to chime in, I thought I’d share this article with you where our contributor @eurekadan talks about cramping in his toes: https://parkinsonsdisease.net/living/to-be-or-not-be-out/.
