  1. Muscle cramps are commonly caused due to accumulation of lactic acid in the muscles. The reasons for this can be many ranging from extreme cold conditions to lack of carbohydrates in the body. When you get a cramp, the immediate action should be to provide the affected area with some warmth. This can be done by tying a woolen scarf around the affected part or rubbing the affected part vigorously with your palm. If the affected area are your legs then you can walk up and down to let the muscles shake up a bit. Post this, pop in a mouthful of sugar into your mouth and let it dissolve as you swallow bit by bit slowly. This will provide relief to the cramps. Alternately you can try having glucose biscuits or plain glucose powder.
