Brief Answer: calcium deficiency Detailed Answer: Hello Leg cramps usually happen due to deficiency of calcium and iron. I usually order blood test to check for these individual nutrients. Vitamin B12, vitamin D as well as thyroid function are other tests that order along with the above. You can take iron and calcium supplements after leaving a blood sample at the lab. Also take diet rich in iron and calcium like milk, spinach and dry fruits. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
