Ahh leg cramps are a nightmare, suffer really bad with them in the summer but i've been lucky so far!
The only thing that seems to work for me is to keep a 'cold' water bottle at the side of the bed, and then once the cramps started i'd lie on my back with the water bottle underneath my legs while I stretched my foot towards my knee til I could feel the muscles stretching and then relaxing it and doing it again!
Hardly something you wanna be doing in the middle of the night when you're half asleep but it's worth a try, worked for me so far! Also try giving your legs a good stretch/massage before you go to sleep x x
