Patient : I am an active 67 yr. old male in good shape in general. My problem is that I get fierce 'charley horses' (cramps) in my feet. My toes double up and the tendons get really hard and protrude from their normal places. PAIN, PAIN, PAIN.
I have been told that it could be dehydration OR lack of calcium in my system.
Am very interested in your expert opinion.
I have full health care in B.C. but have the opinion that the Doctors would rather have me take drugs than suggest a more 'natural' fix.
