    Hi colin. I have also had cramping in my calves for about 2 yrs now. I've been a walker, bike rider, swimmer all my life. Now, at age 76, have been getting the cramping whenever I bend down to pick up something, or when walking uphill. I have asked two doctors, and they told me to be tested for low magnesium. I wasn't low, and tried taking magnesium and potassium. No results. tried drinking lots of water, still no results. I now think it may be a side effect of taking Hydroxyurea for polycythemia.  Have you seen your doctor? harrishill

      I seen my Dr about this about a year ago he done all the leg movements etc he didn't seem fussed at that point a year later and am still getting this I'm going to get an appointment some time this week if possible as I have no clue what could be causing it my twin brother says he gets the same when he dose what I do and my partner aswell... I'm not very active and maybe that has something to do with it it's not atall sore only when i sort of point my foot up and down I feel it in my leg.. anyways i will post back my findings when i see my Dr thanks for your reply
