I too have had problems with cramps in my legs - i play alot of sport 
and thought nothing else of it. It is very painful i am basically 
frozen from the thighs down even my toes cramp up - turns out that it 
was blood sugar related. So it is a motivation to keep my levels normal 
in fear of cramping up. I would not wish these cramps on my worst enemy.
