In brief: Cramps

If you are older they amy due to a vascular obstruction.
If you have them at rest they amy be due to magnesium or potassium deficiency or sometimes calcium deficiency. Also there are nerve damage problems from the low back to consider. It is probably good to ask you physician to sort all this out.
