Hello,

I have studied your case. Cramps in the whole body are usually due to lack of sodium and calcium in the body. So you need to check if your calcium and sodium are normal. If you are on high blood pressure medicines then chances of salt deficiency are higher. So go through this test. You can also take salt with juices and water.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
