Hello Welcome to JA. I am here to help if I can.. tell me about this problem, nocturnal leg cramps? Do you have PAD (peripheral artery disease) from hypertension, diabetes, smoking? Is this vascular disease where you feet are becoming cold and blue? Have you lost the hair from your calves? Let me know what medications you take, and what studies you have had, doctors you have seen. If you have any reports, copy and paste them into the text box, and I will respond with a useful answer.
