toe/foot/leg cramping at night

Why do my toes cramp? It doesn't mater what toe. When I am getting ready to sleep, or even while I am sleeping my toes will cramp toward the bottom of my foot. It is extremely painful. It also moves up to my calves and then behind my knee up into the back of my thigh into my buttocks.

What is going on here? What can I do to stop it?
