General & Family Physician 's  Response
Dear user,

thank you for your questions. its very important to note that if the pain is unilateral meaning one leg if there is any calf size increase or skin redness indications of deep vein thrombosis, an ultra sound for lower limb will help your doctor to test for that. if on the other hand the pain is bilateral and shooting from the spine back to your knees you might want to check for disc prolapse. Now we addressed serious situations, there is a high possibility that those muscle cramps is due to increased physical activity on with low water intake, so drink more water might help you.

hope this helped.

best regards,
Dr. Nazzal
