How can severe leg cramps be treated?

I had severe leg cramps 4-5 times last night, waking me every 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. in my upper thighs...both legs. Having researched this before I ate two bananas and drank 3 20oz bottles of water throughout... what can I do eat to prevent this from happening tonight?

Greetings from HealthcareMagic!
Mostly due to nutritional deficiency,you can take vitamin E capsules daily and vitamin B 12 daily. It will help u and can use muscle relaxants for 5 days.
