    Cramps could be due to Vitamin and Calcium Deficiency and also could be because of prediabetic stage .Kindly try using Tab Shelcal 500 mg Once daily and Tab Gabaneuron 300 Once Daily for a Month. Also do some sgtretching exercises to the calf muscles and effective physiotherapy also would help.Monitor Sugar levels regularly . IF problem still persisits consult a neurologist .

    You have nocturnal claudication. Probably your diabetes has predisposed it. You need to avoid standing or walking for long hours and exposure to cold. You must avoid smoking. You probably need evaluation for thrombophlebitis or arterial disease. You need to get evaluate for diabetes, complete blood picture, ESR etc. Please consult your doctor for long term treatment of prevention of thrombus (like aspirin).
