They usually occur when we are resting. There is no ‘warning’ that cramps in the feet will occur, so we can never expect them. Also, there is no specific age limit when and where may appear that unpleasant feeling (in young children and in the elderly).
Cramps most often happen to athletes (injuries etc.). Also, pregnant women in the third month of pregnancy tend to have leg cramps.
Surely you did not know that if it comes to dehydration, lack of water intake into the body, increases the chances of foot cramps. And also, it is common for people who do not have enough Mg. The frequent occurrence of cramps can be a warning to Parkinson’s disease.
What is Parkinson’s Disease?
Parkinson's disease (PD) is a chronic and progressive movement disorder, meaning that symptoms continue and worsen over time. Nearly one million people in the US are living with Parkinson's disease, although there is presently no cure, there are treatment options such as medication and surgery to manage its symptoms.
Parkinson’s involves the malfunction and death of vital nerve cells in the brain, called neurons. Parkinson's primarily affects neurons in an area of the brain called the substantia nigra. Some of these dying neurons produce dopamine, a chemical that sends messages to the part of the brain that controls movement and coordination. As PD progresses, the amount of dopamine produced in the brain decreases, leaving a person unable to control movement normally.
