Abstract

There are few data available regarding the characteristics of nocturnal leg cramps in primary care. However, this condition is particularly common among older adults and often causes sleep disturbances, which can seriously affect quality of life. We aimed to investigate the main characteristics of nocturnal leg cramps occurring over a two-week period in patients visiting primary care physicians.
