I am 58 and also get the cramps you describe, I can only assume the the leg cramps are due  to my working schedule of 12 hour shifts.

It's because of the way you sleep.  The best way to sleep is on your back with a firm pillow. If you sleep on your side or on your tummy with you arms tucked under, you'll get cramps.
