I understand that muscle cramps result typically from a shortage of
calcium, potassium, or hydration, or from fatigue, but what
specifically goes on in the muscle at the cellular/molecular level? Does
that vary depending on the cause? None of the anatomy & physiology or
exercise physiology books I can find (or internet sources) explain it.
