Why do I always get cramps in my legs?

Report as

Dehydration. Lack of potassium. Likely the first. Make sure you are drinking lots of water. And stretch (if you're exercising).

You need to drink more water cause you could be dehydrated. You might also be low in potassium, try eating some bananas or kiwis. And athletic trainer once told me that if your legs start cramping, you might need more sodium. So salt your food just A LITTLE. And as always, before any physical activity, stretch!

If you don't necessarily like eating bananas for potassium, you can get a vitamin that's strictly your daily dose of potassium. Do drink more water, they are right....

Your loosing lactic acid. You can drink quinine water and this will relieve the cramps. the other answers are also right. My personal trainer told me about the lactic acid and the water.

You always get cramps in your legs because of poor blood circulation, low potassium levels and fluid imbalance or dehydration. To reduce the cramps, eat bananas and take plenty of water. However, consult your doctor in order to receive further treatment.

Because you don't eat enough bananas!

It could be a number of things. The most accurate advice/diagnoses would come from a doctor you see and who knows exactly where/when/why the cramps come. Don't rely on a bunch of random people on here lol but a good place to start trying to find out the problem for yourself is to drink more water and simply take a vitamin a day, and squeeze in a fresh fruit! They're loaded in essential vitamins and minerals that Americans lack in their diets. If none of that helps, go see a doctor because it could be something as serious as a tumor growing near the nerve cord or artery going to your legs. But don't worry...vitamins and water should do the trick ;)

Your muscle is contracted and cannot relax. I advise you stretch and put your affected area in boiling water.

Older mattresses have a usable life of about ten years. If your legs hurting more when you first wake up & you have an older mattress, you probably need to buy a new one.
