To me, foot cramps are the worst. There’s almost nothing worse than being all comfy in bed, only to flex your foot wrong and have it cramp. For me, the only way to get rid of a foot cramp is to climb out of bed and walk it off.
Thankfully, foot cramps are rare for me, but any foot cramp is one too many in my book. Having to get out of bed for any reason after getting settled in is not a fun occasion.
I suppose in the grand scheme of things, foot cramps are far from the worst possible outcome. In fact, they’re more of an inconvenience than anything. But in that moment when you feel your foot cramp, it does seem like the world is coming to an end.
Anne LaMott once said that bananas are the only known cure for existential dread. Apparently, they also work well for preventing foot cramps. Maybe I need to get back to eating more bananas.
