I had the treatment in Oct. Since then I have gotten very bad foot cramps.
Done everything the doctor told me. Ever had a bad foot cramp when you are
wearing your night splint? Any suggestions?

Am confused about night splints also. Maybe one of the doctors can help. Used one for four months with no problems. But just recently am experiencing cramps.

Are you on any oral anti-inflammatories? My POD prescribed Piroxicam
as part of my treatment, and I immediaitely started getting constant
foot cramps, especially in the the middle of the night. I was waking
up 2 and 3 times a night, getting out of bed trying to walk it off.

He then changed me to Diflusinol, and the problem disappeared.

I hope this helps.
