What causes muscle cramps and pain in quadriceps?

I am a 33 year old active female (5 7 , 125 lbs) that struggles with chronic muscle cramps & pain in my quadriceps. It usually occurs if I sit for longer than 20 min. If I get up and move it helps relieve some of the pain and discomfort so I try not to sit for too long. I have never taken anything for the pain. I do however have several family members with autoimmune disorders.

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms seem to be related to muscle cramps.
I suggest using a spasmolytic such as Baclofen three times a day.
I also suggest using magnesium supplement for muscle relaxation.
I recommend warm compresses for local application.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
