A member asked:

Dear doc, sometimes my muscles cramps alot.what might be the reason?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Multiple: Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to your concern. While electrolyte (potassium, magnesium) disturbances are often blamed for muscle cramps, frequently the reason remains unidentified even after rigorous work up. If there is no identifiable cause, i'd focus on symptomatic treatment - passive calf stretching exercises, keeping yourself well hydrated, avoiding excessive physical activity, etc.
