Are there any good ways to prevent leg cramps in my sleep?

Several things

Sleep
Night-time leg cramps are common. Try stretching your calf muscles before going to bed: Stand away from a wall and lean forward keeping one heel flat and bringing the other foot forward; hold 30-60 seconds and then stretch the other side. Consider stretching several times a day. There are medications for some conditions that help. See your primary provider if stretching does not work.
