Cramp is when your muscles tighten and go stiff it will hurt but will go off some time after. Sometimes if you get cramp in your foot you wil be able to see it just stand on it and it will go off. Some people say that cramp is caused by not enough water but i dont believe that . It could be caused by low calcium levels in the blood.
