Lots of reasons....hydration, electrolytes, exercise....need to look at your recent habits. Good Luck,  cramps are awful. I also usually get mine at night.

Went for a brisk walk with the wife to dinner.  No booze, don’t feel dehydrated.

 

All through wrestling and boxing I'd get them in my legs...hamstrings mostly.  Best advice I got was to eat a banana, drink a Pedialyte (or Powerade) and 2 baby aspirin.  It worked nearly every time but modern medicine says there are a variety of reasons for cramping as we get older.

 

Nightime cramps are the absolute worst...

You got my sympathy, terrible stuff, For me, walking it off seems to be the only thing that works. But I'll try the Teraworx....

Pickle juice shot

This works wonders

stops almost immediately 

 

they make specific products (google) so you don’t need to empty the pickle jar.

stretch, drink more water, take a magnesium supplement with some malic acid and get checked for diabetes (if you don't have it).
