Foot cramps are very painful muscle cramps. They can strike while you are moving or attack while you are sleeping. A foot cramp feels like the muscles and tendons in the bottom of your foot are pulled very tightly and the sharp pain cannot be ignored. The toes curl tightly together and cannot be separated, making it impossible to stand on the foot. It is not unusual for the pain to radiate up to the Achilles tendon on the back of the foot.
