Rd, it might be due to an electrolyte imbalance, blood flow problems or neurological problems. It is often due to a magnesium or potassium deficiency, so you can safely try taking something like Slow Mag® and Slow K®. If it doesn’t make a difference within a week or two (or if it becomes worse), the best would be to see your doctor. Good luck.
