How to overcome the leg cramps on my thigh area?

My husband is suffering from severe leg cramps in the thigh area....has sufered from this over several years but is literally soaking in warm water now to alleviate the spasms. He drinks more water than most every day, takes one medication for blood pressure control, and is very active. Why do these cramps keep occurring and besides eating bananas all day, is there something else we should be exploring?
