Leg Cramps

Dear Dr.
My farther is 52 years old. He works very hard and very long hours (mostly 12hrs plus). He has high blood pressure and is on medication. He has been suffering from leg cramps which is very painfull and crippling (day and night). Could this be a more serious problem other than working riduculous long hours? Is there anything that he can do to lighten the pain or reduce the symptons?
Please advise.
Yours sincerely,
Natalie
