Hello doctor, I am contemplating at the age of 34, and have two children. NThe last few years every night I often experience cramps at night, although not intense every day, but sometimes I feel like my legs are going to cramp. fasting, both sunna and fasting Ramadan, every time after breaking, I must have experienced cramps and most often the legs .. During the 12 days of Ramadan I also experienced it, but sometimes the cramps are very very painful .. why huh?

Hello Meita, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Cramps in the legs can occur due to several possibilities, including:

Dehydration or lack of fluids. Excessive use of the leg muscles, for example, you are doing strenuous exercise that exceeds your muscle capacity. Impaired flow of leg blood vessels, for example, you have atherosclerosis (plaque buildup in the arteries in the legs). There is pressure on the nerves in the spine. Electrolyte disorders, when you experience a lack of potassium, calcium or magnesium in your body. The side effects of certain drugs, one of which is diuretics (drugs that trigger urination). Pregnancy Having certain diseases can also increase your risk of experiencing cramps such as diabetes and hypothyroidism.

Some things you can try to do to treat your cramps include:

Make sure you drink in sufficient quantities (at least 2-3 liters a day) Stretch your leg muscles (stretching) as often as possible, especially before you exercise Eat foods that contain lots of important minerals such as potassium, calcium and magnesium Soak your feet in warm water before you sleep

If the cramps in your legs continue to occur, check with your doctor for a deeper evaluation of the cause of the cramps in your legs and be given appropriate treatment for these causes.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
