What are cramps?

An involuntary muscle contraction or spasm that causes pain causes a cramp. Sometimes they are a mere nuisance. But if you're swimming in deep water and your foot cramps up, well, you have a problem. Muscle cramps can cause serious pain and render the victim unable to use the muscle at all. Even the grisliest footballer can be disabled by a muscle cramp. Dehydration is a common cause of muscle cramps; they can also be a side effect of medication. Muscle cramps can usually be dealt with at home and we have some suggestions here at GrannyMed. But you should see a doctor if you have a recurring, persistent problem with muscle cramps.
