Muscle Cramps in Legs

A muscle cramp in your leg might be due to poor blood circulation caused by chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) or peripheral artery disease (PAD). While CVI affects your veins and PAD affects your arteries, both conditions can cause severe muscle cramping and spasms in your legs.

Texas Vein & Wellness Institute offers an array of treatment options to minimize cramping symptoms of CVI and PAD.

What Causes Muscle Cramping in Legs?

A myriad of conditions, like dehydration, fatigue, vitamin D, and calcium deficiency, can cause muscle cramping. Culprits also include CVI and PAD, as poor blood circulation and cramping go hand in hand.

Leg cramps and spasms are common symptoms of CVI and usually occur at night. When your veins struggle to transport blood back to your heart, blood lays in a pool. Blood pooling can damage your blood vessels, causing varicose veins. As this condition worsens, you might start to experience symptoms like muscle cramps in your legs.

Muscle cramping is the most common symptom of PAD. People with PAD usually experience cramps in their calves, thighs or hips when they are active because your legs need more blood supply when you are moving about. Cramps are the muscle’s way of notifying the body that your legs need a higher blood supply.
