What could cause pain in the pads of your feet and hands?

For the past several days I have had cramping my feet and hands.

This can be caused by dehydration in an extreme case which would cramp the muscles of your feet and hands. More than likely this is caused by overexertion of the muscles in the feet and hands and your muscles are cramping and spasming to help compensate. Eat a few bananas and see if you see a difference.

Sometimes, pain in your feet or hands can be caused by repetitive motion. Exercises like running, aerobics, tennis and similar motions can cause pain in your feet. Cramping in your hands might be caused by repetitive activities like sewing or cutting small things. Of course, the best thing to do is check with your doctor.

This could be a couple of things. It could be simple arthritis, its worse in the hands and feet and exacerbated by bad weather. Or you could be have circulation problems.

Repetitive motion and incorrect position in office work can cause this. Medications or supplements can cause this side effect. Cramping is often relieved by potassium, ie a banana a day.
