9. Leg Cramps

Cramps are the involuntary contractions of certain muscles. They are often associated with sports people but anybody can experience them. They can be very uncomfortable and, in extreme cases, they can have a considerable impact on the patient’s quality of life.

It is not understood why, but some people are prone to experiencing cramps in their legs at night. This can be enough to keep them awake but it can also cause problems when they do fall asleep. One such problem is sleep paralysis as there is believed to be a link between the two conditions. Cramps can often be treated to reduce the symptoms even if they cannot be cured.
