Well Mollie, cramps do tend to occur more frequently with age Lot’s of people do suffer night cramps, so you would think that there would be a whole lot more on the topic.
The Mayo Clinic can describe night cramps [http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/night-leg-cramps/MY00410] but offer no solution, and a British site [http://www.patient.co.uk/health/Cramps-in-the-Leg.htm] gives some tips to reduce night cramps. Oh yes, and stick to comfy shoes.
