I’ve been having sporadic but very intense muscle spasms/cramps in my foot in the exact same place for several months. The last few times this has happened, my skin has bruised from the severity of the cramp and I actually cried because of the pain. It only tends to last for a minute or two, but it really is awful.
The pain/bruising always occurs in the exact same spot on the inside of the my left foot, and now the skin there is marked and knotted to the touch (I’m not sure if the muscle underneath is, as well), even though I haven’t had a bad cramp in a few weeks.
I have a history of fibromyalgia in my family, but I don’t know if this type of thing is a usual symptom. Does anybody have any experience with this sort of thing or ideas about what it might be?
