In brief: Consider cause

Cramping is seen with tired muscles after working out, prolonged standing/working.
Can be seen when potassium, calcium, magnesium levels are low, dehydration, and with those having venous disease. Try stretching maneuvers, ice massages, repletion of minerals (banana, oj), and seeking help of a phlebologist to check out your leg veins.
