From this study (1 week ago):
Experiencing leg (shin and calf)and toe cramps most nights. Have started stretching before bedtime. This seems to have helped a little but still getting cramps most nights.

51 year old male. Was having severe nightly quad cramps that were extremely painful. Had a PFO closure three weeks ago. No leg cramps since.
25% of population born with PFO so you might have it checked out.
