    Night time cramps may be due to the following reasons:
    - as a result of having a flat foot
    - when a person looses too much water
    - after excess of exercise
    - standing on concrete for a long time
    - irregular sleeping positions
    - a thyroid disease
    - a lack of potassium, calcium, or other minerals
    - sitting for a long period of time
    - taking certain medications, such as steroids, birth control pills, diuretic, antipsycotics, and - statins.

    Act as though it's a shortage of potassium and eat a banana before going to sleep....
