Many possibilities: One of the most common symptoms of varicose veins and venous incompetence is leg cramps. As much as 70% of the time, people with varicose veins will have leg cramps. Although there are many other possible causes, as others have said, if you have any visible veins in your legs, you should see a venous specialist (phlebologist) for help.

Start with internist: An internist is a general practitioner. Problem could be caused by medication causing low potassium, not drinking enough fluids, overusage of muscles, a muscle disease such as pmr etc. If internist can't find cause, consider a physiatrist (specialist in entire musculoskeletal system); or rheumatologist (joint and muscle diseases)., generally, drink more water, eat lots potassium rich foods (fruits).
