    There are many reasons why you might experience cramps in your legs and feet.  It can be as simple as too little water taken or a nutrient deficiency caused by dietary imbalance. 
    As you have an ongoing problem and say you have autoimmune diseases, you should consult a doctor about the cause of your cramping.
