    My hubby has those horrible cramps. He has them when he has worked hard and perspired a lot. He eats food with potasium, and drinks lots of juice, but still has those cramps. We've learned it's best for him to take a potasium pill before going to bed.

    Talk to your doctor. There is a blood test for potasium level. Too much potasium can be harmful.

    I have this fairly often myself. I was told it is caused by a lack of
    potassium, and to eat more bananas, potatos, etc.

    I used to have this problem back when I played alot of sports. It's usually caused by a buildup of lactic acid. I suggest stretching before you go to bed. It is definitely a shock to wake up to. When it does happen do a calf stretch in bed, that will relieve the pain. Just sit with that leg straight out in front of you, and reach and grab your toe. It could also be caused by a lack of potassium. Eating a banana often will cut down on the cramps. Hope this helps!

    Leg Cramps

    Has anyone ever woken up in the middle of the night or early morning because you felt this excruciating pain in your calve(s)?
    This happens to me every so often, say like once or twice a year. Sometimes even days after it happened, I still feel a bit of pain. I walk a lot..but what do you think can be causing this?:(
