In brief: Several things

As a phlebologist (vein specialist), my first question to anyone with crampy calf pain is related to veins.
Do you have varicose veins? Could this be related to phlebitis? Other things can cause muscle pain though? Could it be medication related? The statins for cholesterol cause leg pain. Are you exercising without stretching adequately first? Are you getting enough fluids?
