In brief: Can be vein problem

Sometimes, people with vein problems have pain, cramping, restless legs at night due to venous circulation problems.
You should see a vein specialist in your area for a venous doppler duplex ultrasound for a diagnosis and then treatment. In the meantime, wear medical compression stockings in the daytime for 2 weeks straight and see if it helps decrease or eliminate your symptoms while you wait.
