Cramp is the involuntary spasm of a muscle, or group of muscles, that often occurs in the calf muscles of the legs. Cramp can happen during vigorous activity, after repeated movements, while resting or following a large meal. Excessive sweating in very hot weather can also cause it. Cramp that occurs mainly in bed at night, known as night cramps, is particularly common in the elderly and may be sufficiently severe as to disturb sleep. About 1 in 3 people over the age of 60, and about half those over 80 regularly experience leg cramps.
