Hallo MR
IF you haven't checked it lately, ask your doctor to do a UKE blood test to see if your potassium and natrium levels are not too low in the blood. It may also help to stretch before you go to bed at night as cramps are often caused by overexertion of certain muscles. If the UKE is normal, your doctor may need to prescribe something like Quinine.
