2. Night Leg Cramps
Night leg cramps are also known as nocturnal leg cramps that cause regular involuntary painful episodes in your leg that could last up to 5 minutes. The calf muscle goes into spasm mode once the muscle is tightened at the lower back of your leg.
Sportsmen who are used to playing in cold conditions get cramps as well. While it has not been scientifically confirmed due to lack of evidence, dehydration is often one of the major causes of night leg cramps.
People in the early 40s are more vulnerable to night-leg cramps because of degenerative muscle loss in their body. And if you haven’t exercised for a long period of time, the risk of night leg cramps increases.
