I am sorry you are having these muscle cramps.

you could be dehydrated or low in potassium or magnesium possibly

many people don't get enough potassium in their diets.

how old are you?

you have peripheral artery disease? I hope you don't smoke

when was the last time you saw your doctor to get blood testing and physical exam?
