Muscle spasms are caused by nerves that malfunction, according to the National Institutes of HealthOff Site Icon (NIH).

Nerves malfunctioning, according to the NIH, can be caused by:

Dehydration
Lack of minerals in your diet
Muscles not getting enough blood
Spinal cord injury
Straining or overusing a muscle

Cramps can be painful, but once the muscle relaxes, the pain will ease, according to the NIH.

Talk to your doctor for more information about what causes leg spasms.

Leg spasms may be caused by an electrolyte imbalance. Electrolytes are chemicals in the blood that regulate important body functions. When a person sweats during exercise, potassium, calcium and magnesium levels are depleted.
