Vitamin and mineral levels

An imbalance in your vitamin and mineral levels could be a possible reason as to why you may be experiencing leg cramps. Chat to your doctor about having your calcium, magnesium and phosphorus levels checked.

In addition, you can ask him or her whether it may be necessary to start taking supplements that may help to raise these levels.
