In brief: A possible cause

One of the most common symptoms of varicose veins and venous incompetence is leg cramps.
As much as 65% 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. Tired muscles or an an electrolyte imbalance can be a cause.
