Strange Calf Spasms

I'm hoping I'm posting this in the right section.

Last night my father woke up in the middle of the night with severe calf, foot and toe cramps. This is nothing new; he just started bowling again and this usually happens to him. This time though the calf spasms were REALLY bad. You could see the muscles twitching on their own. Eventually the pain let up and he went back to bed.

All day today though the calf spasms have continued. You can still see the muscles twitching and everything. The strange part though is that there's no pain involved. My dad feels fine and is having no problem walking or moving.

Has anyone encountered anything like this? What could be the cause? My father thinks dehydration may be cause. Does anyone have any insights?

Re: Strange Calf Spasms

While I am not sure what the cause is I can tell you I have had similar experience. When it happens to me I try to eat more bananas - or take vitamin/nutrient - magnesium caltrate.
