If the feeling that you are experiencing is sort of like a cramp, then there could be several causes for this feeling, such as poor circulation which in turn could caused by several thing such as:

• Sitting in odd positions.
• Lying in strange ways.
• Accidently cutting off circulation to limbs.

If you feel like you are about to experience cramp in your feet or legs, then the best thing that you can do is to get up and walk around for a little until you feel like they are back to normal. If you continue to get the feeling then consider the way that you are sitting and if that could be the causing your discomfort.

The most common cause of cramping in limbs and extremities like the fingers and toes is a deficiency in essential minerals such as:

• Calcium.
• Magnesium.
• Potassium.
• Sodium.

If you suspect that this may be causing your cramps, then eat more foods that are rich in potassium such as bananas, drink more milk and consider taking a daily vitamin supplement to make sure that you are getting the daily required amounts of these minerals.

If you are a person who is used to drinking more alcohol than you have been doing recently, then the cramps could be a way of reacting to the sudden lack of alcohol in the body. In other words, a withdrawal symptom. This is usually not serious although if it continues then you should see your Doctor.

Cramps are usually caused by sitting or lying in odd positions or another one of the reasons suggested above. If you change your sitting positions, are eating right and are not undergoing a withdrawal from alcohol and your cramps do not go away on their own then you should see your Doctor as soon as possible.
