The toe cramp from hell

Earlier in the evening, I had a severe spasm in my right leg. It was still bothering me, but I went to bed...

Only to be awakened two hours later with a cramp in my right little toe of such magnitude that as I reached to massage it, I was certain it had rotated 180° and folded back over the top of my foot.

Nope... it was positioned appropriately, but I had to get up and put pressure on it to stop the sensation of it being crushed by a large piece of farm equipment.

So I'm at my desk, pressing my foot into the floor, and trying to take my mind off it...

"Nocturnal leg cramps are sudden contractions of the lower leg and foot muscles. They often awaken you from sleep... The cramps are harmless. They do not mean that you have a serious disease."

They then list various causes, including neurological diseases, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, hypoglycemia, and hormone disorders.

Oh, good. No serious diseases in that list...
