It is not known exactly why muscle cramps develop, however, muscle cramping is often caused by an imbalance in the body's levels of electrolytes. Electrolytes are minerals such as sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium, phosphate and magnesium found and carried in the blood and help regulate cellular function. These electrolytes can be out of balance due to illness or exercise. 

A deficiency of vitamin E also may be involved. Another common cause is unaccustomed physical overexertion, overuse, or strain. 

Other causes of muscle cramping include:
  • Insufficient stretching before exercise.
  • Sitting, standing, or lying for a long period of time in one position.
  • Anemia.
  • The use of tobacco products.
  • Inactivity.
  • Fibromyalgia.
  • Hormone imbalances.
  • Allergies.
  • Arthritis.
  • Arteriosclerosis.
  • Dehydration.
  • Heat stroke.
  • Hypothyroidism.
  • Varicose veins.
  • More rarely, the early stages of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease).
  • Some medications can cause muscle cramping as a side effect. The use of diuretic drugs for high blood pressure or heart disorders may lead to electrolyte imbalances, causing muscle cramp's.
  • Poor circulation also contributes to leg cramps.


There are six basic causes of cramping:
  • Hyperflexion.
  • Inadequate oxygenation.
  • Exposure to large changes in temperature.
  • Dehydration.
  • Low blood salt.
  • Low blood calcium.

Muscle cramps may also be a symptom and/or complication of pregnancy, kidney disease, thyroid disease, hypokalemia or hypocalcemia (as conditions), restless legs syndrome, varicose veins, and multiple sclerosis. 



Supplemental calcium and magnesium have each been shown to help prevent cramps associated with pregnancy. An adequate intake of both of these minerals during pregnancy is important for this and other reasons, but supervision by a midwife or qualified health professional is essential.
