Default Leg Cramps at night

Last couple of months, more so, last few weeks, I've been getting some pretty intense calf/quad muscle cramps at night.

I think I'm pretty hydrated, and have proper levels of Postassium, as I eat Paleo, log in Fitday, take a Multi just to be sure.

I have started taking about 5mg of Creatine, and wouldn't be surprised if this is one of the side affects.

I also stretch, take a hot bath most nights, with Epsom Salts, so I'm going to bed pretty relaxed.

Any comments or suggestions welcome, as flying out of bed to try to walk off the cramp is not doing my deep sleep patterns any good.

Thanks in advance.
