I have been experiencing severe pain in my leg after I wake up and put my feet down. It subsides after 1 hour but this not a cramp. I don't know what this is or how to cure it. Please help.

It might be planter fascitis. There is chronic degenerative changes in the planter fascia. You need to avoid heels and wear a footwear that is having sponge under heel or good support under heal. Better to wear sports shoes. Along with this avoid walking barefoot. You can apply ice on it. And apply locally analgesic ointment. Along with it orally medication to gontrol pain. Once pain subsides you need to do stretching excercises.

Hello lybrate-user, please do the following things for 10 - 15 days and let me have your feed back. 1. Massage / rub your two middle fingers tightly (of hands and feet middle toes) of both the hands and both the feet about 1-2 minute each, twice-thrice a day. 2. Before going to bed - soak your legs for about 10 minutes in a bucket half or one-third filled with warm water mixed with some salt or fitkari (alum). After that wipe them with a towel and wrap in a dry towel or bedsheet for 10-15 minutes. 3. Massage your legs with lukewarm mustard or til oil. 4. Stop standing for too long at a time. 5. Stop taking sour and acidic food, cold drinks, cold and stale food. 6. If you have lower back also pain, stop bending forward or straining the back. If you still continue to have the pain after about 10 days of doing all these things,
