Muscle Cramp: Muscle cramps can have many possible causes. They include:poor blood circulation in the legs, overexertion of the calf muscles while exercising, insufficient stretching before exercise, exercising in the heat, muscle fatigue, dehydration, magnesium and/or potassium deficiency, malfunctioning nerves, which could be caused by a problem such as a spinal cord injury or pinched nerve in the neck or back.

See a podiatrist: This might be due to tendinitis, arthritis, prior injury, neuroma, capsulitis among other causes. X-rays might be helpful, and getting a good diagnosis is the first step in answering your question.
