Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
Do you take any medications ? Some diuretics may cause low potassium which is a common cause of leg cramps
Other electrolyte abnormals ( calcium, magnesium ) can be related to leg cramps ..
If you had unusual activity ( prolonged standing / walking / climbing ) then muscle fatigue may lead to this problem
Taking added potassium often helps as may a magnesium supplement
Review of meds and other factors may be helpful
I hope that this information is helpful for you

I will be happy to get back with you

Thank you and Best Regards,
