  • Leg cramps are an indication of 2 things. Dehydration and a lack of potassium. So, drink more water and eat a banana. :o)

  • leg cramps are not a sign of lack of potassium actually thats a myth.

  • Yes, it is due to lack of potassium,lack of fluids and calcium.

  • One more cause besides what i mentioned in previous post at: 2:44 AM also can be caused from poor circulation.
