      Cramps are caused by a muscle that holds really tight and then relaxes, but it can really hurt! Sometimes if you overwork a muscle or if it can’t get enough oxygen through your blood, it can start to cramp. Sometimes cramps are your body trying to expel something or move it into another part of your body. Ouch!
