Night time leg cramps in this age group is usually caused by prolonged sitting, improper posture, exertion, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and neuropathy. I would recommend to take lots of fluids and keep yourself well hydrated, massage legs with olive oil, stretching exercises, proper fitted shoes, ridding stationery cycle before going to bed can help.

Hope this helps.

I will pass this on to my husband. What is ridding stationery cycle? Would magnesium supplements be helpful too?

He drinks lots of Gatorade in powder form. Is that helpful?

Hello again. I have follow-up question about a cause of leg cramps. I showed my husband what you said. He seems to think that frozen pizza or Chinese food causes his cramps because the cramps always come on after he eats this food. I can understand maybe Chinese food because high sodium or maybe msg? Not sure about the pizza though. It is a Vermont local frozen pizza which I think is the healthiest for a pizza. What do think?
