Cramps in my feet, arches and calves.

I have very high arches.  Every night while sleeping, I get cramps in my feet, arches and sometimes calves.  Don't know if it has anything to do with my high arches but it is even worse when I am training hard.  Is this caused by a vitamin deficiency?  I have tried all kinds of stuff and so far, nothing seams to help.  Any suggestions?

    I have the same thing.  If you find out please let me know.

    I don't have high arches but lately I have had the same thing while I sleep or while watching TV.  Any suggestion?

    Are they like charlie horse cramps?  If so, potassium is usually the culprit for that...  If you exercise regularly, your body can be depleted of potassium through dehydration.  I get the weird twitching eye thing, but my husband gets nasty, nasty charlie horses...  A potassium suppliment (and/or through food) works great for that...

     

    What's in the potion you got?
