This is Dr. David

I am sorry you are having on and off leg and arm cramps

there are many possible causes

you could have a pinched nerve or stenosis of your spinal cord

you could have periotic low potassium or low magnesium blood levels

you could be having poor circulation into your arms or legs.

you could have a pinched nerve in your lower back.

there are medical tests which can check for these issues

but you have to see a doctor to get testing

do you have a doctor you can see who can run some tests for you?
