Lately I've noticed that foot cramps have bothered me more frequently. They seem to come out of nowhere: when putting on a shoe, stopping suddenly, or pressing the gas pedal while driving. Several sources agree that common causes of foot cramps include some degree of dehydration or low levels of magnesium, potassium or calcium - all important in maintaining healthy bones.
Simple solutions: drink more water, or water with a splash of juice, add high-calcium and high potassium foods such as string cheese, bananas, extra leafy greens, and take baths with Epsom salts for a boost in magnesium and a soothing effect on muscles.
Taking care of your bones, especially when you know that bone density is an issue, is a life-long process. Paying attention to signs like foot cramps can help you get back on track with a few simple changes in diet, exercise, etc.
