Health Tip: Battling Muscle Cramps?
This could be why

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- The tight, searing pain of a muscle cramp is tough to forget. But do you know why your muscles spasm?

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons mentions these possible causes:

  • Failing to stretch muscles before exercise.
  • Exercising muscles that are over-fatigued.
  • Exercising in hot weather.
  • Exercising when you are dehydrated or lack electrolytes.
  • Overexerting yourself during exercise.
  • Being overweight, being sick or taking certain medications.
  • Being older.
