Foot cramp linked to period...

Okay...this is really weird...but...

Whenever I get my period, my LEFT FOOT cramps up really badly the day before and during. I don't get it! Is there some weird nerve connection between my cervix and foot? It's really perplexing!

Occasionally, when I have an orgasm, my left foot will twitch as well.

What's going on here? I'm so confused.

Sometimes when I have the worst cramps, my stomach, leg, and foot will all ache really painfully. A friend of mine says this happens to her too - we've never understood why!

Holy Weirdness Batman! (I love the icon)

Bodies are so strange. I used to get horrific knee pain in one knee during my periods. If I touch a certain place too hard on my girlfriend's vag she gets a shooting pain in her shoulder!

It's possible that your uterus is swelling in such a way that It's pressing a nerve. Lots of women get backache, maybe you get it in your foot?

Interested to see what other replies you get!

It may be a purely psycological link.

I used to get really bad leg cramps, and if I thought too much about it I could induce a cramp.

When I orgasm, my jaw clicks. Like really crunches. No idea why.

I guess it's just because everyone's different:)

Some putting their hand on my right knee gets me aroused. And I know my period is coming because it gets stiff and achy shortly before--as well as my right elbow.

I'm similar. If the top of my arms are touched I get an instant girl-boner. It can be really embarrassing!

People have the weirdest erogenous zones, right? My feet sometimes ache during my period, too, but I always thought that was because when I have cramps or am aroused my legs and feet just want to curl inward, you know?

It is so strange. I get evil, evil cramps in my knees sometimes when I'm about to orgasm. I'll flail around like a mad thing, and my poor girlfriend is never quite sure whether I've got crazy-bad charley horses, or I'm having the time of my life! My legs used to hurt so badly during my period, now it's just the soles of my feet, as if I've walked for miles. I don't even have 'proper' periods anymore, so I may not even be bleeding, but the achy feet are a dead giveaway :D

If it's the kind of foot cramp I'm thinking about, it can actually occur from dehydration or some kind of vitamin/potassium deficiency - which makes sense, if you're bleeding, or your body is preparing to lose a lot of blood. Maybe try a multivitamin and a YooHoo?
silverwing26 21st-Nov-2008 07:32 pm (UTC)
Just curious... why a yoohoo?
vdoeschallenge 21st-Nov-2008 07:47 pm (UTC)
I don't know why she suggested YooHoo, but whenever I get leg cramps (I used to a lot, and really bad when I was small) my mom makes me Nesquick. And eat a banana, that will help with the potassium.

125 mg of potassium/svg - lack of potassium can lead to cramps

Heh, if I stimulate my clit too much, the bottoms of my feet will burn. It's totally the weirdest feeling ever.
jesuisjill 21st-Nov-2008 07:07 pm (UTC)
I get this, too. Though, the sensation tends to draw blood to my feet, which can be pretty handy, since I have issues with constantly cold feet.

I don't knof if its related or not, but if he isn't fully hydrated my husbands foot cramps during orgasm too. Could it be a hyrdration thing?

I dunno, I tend to drink plenty of water.

I've just remembered something else really weird. I'm partially-sighted due to some brain damage. If I have more than 4 orgasms during sex I can see better. Not much, just a really tiny bit, but It's so weird! Only after four though. Three doesn't do it. I love my freaky body.

Personally, I can tell when I'm close to orgasm not from my crotch, and not from my uterus, or whatever -- but my feet tingle. Literally. The bottoms tingle. It's weird.
misfit4leaf 21st-Nov-2008 09:19 pm (UTC)
When I've stimulated my clit too much, or I'm on the verge of a really big orgasm, my feet will tingle. Not just the bottoms, but the whole thing.

I don't know but I orgasm from foot massages.

Totally unrelated note, but I wish I were you.

It's not exactly the same, but 9 times out of 10, before my period my knees and ankles will hurt really bad and crack! It's been that way since I started my periods when I was 11/12. Bodies do very odd things sometimes, at least I'm not the only one who has weird period related cramps.

In Chinese Medicine, the Spleen and Liver are responsible for the smooth flow of Blood and Qi. Those meridians also start on the big toe and run up the legs, through the genitals and to the chest. It may be a Liver/Spleen tie-in here, and acupuncture would likely be helpful.
