Ugh.. I get this too, all of the time. =/ I mainly get it in the calves of my legs, my feet, and also in my hands. For me, the feeling is a total stiffness and locking-up of the muscles/whatever.. and then pain.. and then it goes numb and I can't move it without more pain.. so I usually have to massage the area for a while and then it'll finally go back to normal.. I really hate it, though.

Anyway, I, too, have heard that it is a potassium problem. Perhaps taking daily vitamins that contain potassium and other things could help? =) I have low iron too, so for me, that would be my own best-bet.. haha
