Our expert says:
Muscle cramps are often caused by overexertion or a shortage of calcium or magnesium. Try adding calcium and if the spasm happen, rub it and stretch the calf muscle by pulling up your front foot to the front of your shin and holding it there for a while. Ask your doctor to check your blood potassium, calcium and magnesium levels with a blood test
