Definitely make sure you're getting enough potassium and magnesium, but it's also possible that doing a few each day isn't enough to keep the muscle in a "trained" state and over time it's just become a little atrophied. If the minerals are right and you're still cramping, maybe try 2 small sessions each day (morning and night?) to try to improve the fitness of the muscle a little. As we get older, it gets harder to maintain our muscle tissue, so it's possible the atrophy just kinda crept up on you.
Hope that's helpful. Let me know how it goes. Good luck! :)
