Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

Muscle cramps and pain are common in geriatric age group people.. The cause for the muscle cramp is due to imbalance in Potassium, calcium, sodium ions in the Muscle cell.. Do not worry... you can try with tab. Zerodol-MR twice daily only for 5 days... good nutrition and rest will be helpful..
