Brief Answer:
She has to get some blood investigations

Detailed Answer:
I have read your questions. Cramping at her age can be due to either low calcium or vitamin B 12 or low sodium in her body. It can be related to her medicines too. I want you to get following investigations for her.
1. Serum calcium and vitamin
2. Serum B 12 estimation
3. Her TSH, T3 and T4
These investigation will help us in finding cause of cramping. Please send me name of all medicines she is taking. I will try my best to help you. Thanks.
