Foot Pain and Dehydration

Foot pain, whether mild or severe, can be a significant disruption and annoyance for many patients. Foot pain can have many different potential causes. One overlooked, yet serious, cause of foot pain is dehydration. When the human body becomes dehydrated and lacks water, then the muscles in the feet can spasm or cramp as a result. The body can become dehydrated for a variety of different reasons, such as lack of water or loss of fluids. Muscle cramps in the feet can cause a range of symptoms. Specifically, they can cause sharp painful sensations, as well as swelling of some sort. If you are someone that struggles with foot pain and cramps from dehydration, then it is highly suggested that you consult with a podiatrist who will be able to address any concerns that you might have and provide proper treatment.
