In brief: Leg muscle spasms

Leg muscle spasms can be caused by an overused, overstretched muscle, dehydration,  depletion of electrolytes, medications or various medical conditions.
 try to gently stretch the muscle back to length to break the spasm cycle. If you are trying this and unable to stop it, it is particularly concerning, you should be evaluated by a physician.
