Muscle cramps are usually harmless, but they can be caused by some medical conditions. Narrowing of the blood vessels leading to the legs can cause muscle cramps that go away soon after exercise.

Low levels of potassium, calcium and magnesium can also cause muscle cramps. www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/muscle-cramp/symptoms-causes/syc-20350820
