It can be due to many other causes like back pain, vein problems etc too.
Sometimes cramps may occur due to electrolyte imbalances.
Firstly, you should have adequate food to carry out your works through out the day.
Drink plenty of water. At least 2-3 litres per day.
Regular exercise to strengthen the muscles.

You can also do some exercise particularly for your legs.
Weight bearing exercises in gym also does the same.
Other than these you will have to take some protective measures.
Maintain a good posture while walking, standing, sitting and lying.
Do not sit in the same position for more than 45 minutes.
Include more vegetables and fruits in your diet.
Are you following me?
By these measures, your condition should improve.
If your condition does not improve after all these measures, you will need to get a check up done by an orthopaedician.
