I've had these cramps for two years but they've only gotten worse in the last 2 weeks. Not sure of the causes. My blood pressure, heart,sugar/cholesterol levels are all normal. I've been taking potassium and eating bananas, and just recently increased my intake of magnesim (Monomagnesium Malate). I do have poor blood circulation in my feet, which are always cold (also my hands). These cramps are excruciatingly painful, which last up to 15 minutes, even with incessant massaging.
