Muscle cramps, or spasms, are uncomfortable and involuntary muscle contrations. Muscle cramps can occur in any of our muscles, but are especially common in the extremities, such as the legs, calves or feet. A muscle spasm can last from seconds to minutes, or even longer. While muscle cramps are common and short-lived, they occasionally cause a great deal of discomfort and can interfere with sleep or daily activities.
Muscle spasms occur when the muscles become over-excited. The causes of muscle cramps are myriad and may include injury, pregnancy, medications, dehydration, food intolerances, and nutrient deficiency. Disturbances of mineral metabolism such as magnesium and calcium can be related to dietary and vitamin deficiencies, leading to foot and leg cramps. Diets chronically low in magnesium, calcium and sodium, for instance, may lead to cramps especially if sodium-depleting medications (blood pressure) are being used.(i) If you have new onset muscle cramps, be sure to check your medications for side effects as many common medications can cause depletion of calcium or magnesium, for example, resulting in muscle spasms.
