I used to have this problem alot, all over body 'cramping' and spasms/ticks....
I had my doctor check my Vit D levels (Vit D regulates metabolism, muscles, joint function). He wasn't really convinced until it came back low and I started a high dose (3,000 IU) daily liquid supplement. Within weeks, my discomfort was gone. Everytime I see him, he is thrilled by the relief/results.
I still use a heating pad at night and one hot bath a week for my hip/lower back stiffness, but all that 'other' cramping is gone.
Hope this helps...
