Like the title says, I started experiencing muscle cramping and spasms in my legs that last pretty much all night. The crams can get so strong they wake me up and there is no painkiller that helps. Only massage, but that gives me just a temporary relief.

I’m female, age 55 and up to this point I was generally healthy and didn’t have any problems even similar to what is happening now. I’m waiting to get an appointment with my physician and I expect I will have to see a neurologist as well, but if anyone could give me at least some idea what might be causing these muscle cramps during night, I’ll be very thankful.
