Cramping can happen due to overexertion of muscles but also due to abnormalities in your blood electrolytes. Please ask your Gp to check by doing a blood UKE test to see if you need potassium or sodium supplementation?
Stretch the affected muscles before you go to bed.
If all else fails, the anti-malarial Quinine helps, but needs to be taken with care and under supervision of a doctor.
