Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.
Your description of symptoms are typically suggestive of Nocturnal muscle cramps
Most of the time, night leg cramps
occur for no known reason, and they're usually harmless. In general, night leg cramps are likely to be related to muscle fatigue
and nerve problems.
In rare situations, night leg cramps can be associated with an underlying disorder, such as peripheral artery disease
, diabetes or spinal stenosis
Self-care activities that might help prevent night leg cramps include:
• Drinking plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration
• Stretching your leg muscles or riding a stationary bicycle for a few minutes before you go to bed
• Massaging the cramped muscle with your hands or with ice
• Taking a hot shower or warm bath
Hope this information is helpful. Good day
