good to hear from you. how was Amsterdam?
cramps in the feet and calf muscle could be from lack of calcium or an electrolyte imbalance. make sure you're not dehydrated in anyway.
do you have any blood pressure or artery disease?
mostly it is a calcium thing....it's benign. you could try adding an extra glass of dairy (or Lactose free milk) to your day and see if it helps.
the other causes could be from improper blood flow....which you'de have to investigate further.
varicose veins can cause this. also...if you're flexing a muscle in the middle of the night and not knowing it...you could get a wicked cramp.
dehydration is a common cause.
socks too tight?
if you elevate your feet/legs...be sure that nothing is cutting into your leg at night. like a pillow pressing too hard under your knees.
have you ever seen a cardiologist?
take good care,
