Question: Since October of last year I would get really bad cramps in my calves almost all day long every day. Then it moved to only after I ate food and now it’s pain only in my right calf. Almost every night I wake up from have horrible tightness pain in my right calf where I wanna scream because of how bad the pain in. I don’t stand a lot and I do work out sometimes but this problem has been going on for so long I need help.

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history well and understood the concerns.
It is more than 8 month that you are suffering from Calf cramps.
To confirm or rule out the probable causes I would advise you the following:
Blood tests of Vitamins and mineral, particularly Vitamin D and Magnesium levels and correction of deficiency if present, helps a lot of patients with similar complaints.
Color Doppler of the right lower limb for varicose veins, DVT, any other abnormality.
Any other relevant investigations as would be suggested after an actual examination.
Increased stress, anxiety can also cause such problems and control of these may help you more.
It is good to now that you are keeping yourself well hydrated.

Please try to remember the factors that instigate or increase your problems or reduce them and post here.

I hope this answer helps you.
