Brief Answer:
Please provide further information.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Madam.

Nocturnal leg cramps can have wide causes.

Before guiding you to appropriate medications, I request for the following information

Are you a diabetic?

Any history of thyroid illness?

Any history of iron deficiency anemia or low blood hemoglobin levels on the past or present ?

Any known neurological issues?

I will guide you further, once I receive your answers.

Thank you
