Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.Severe cramps are likely due to the blodo flow related problem or nerve related problem.Reduced blood flow from peripheral arterial disease is possible due to diabetes.Peripheral neuropathy is another common cause.You should see a neurologist for further evaluation.You can consider a muscle relaxant Baclofen as needed or Gabapentin to control the symptoms.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star on top).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:
