Hi there,

I would suggest you drink plenty of fluids ( water , green tea) etc. Check your electrolyte levels, calcium levels. Vitamin defeciency, Low calcium levels , low electrolyte levels , dehydration can cause leg cramps. Since you are already on Vit B12 , this defeciency is ruled out.

Hope this helps.
