Lately my calves in my legs have been aching and sometimes
spasming. It is usually at night when they are the
worst. They even jerk and wake me up at night.
Is there anything that will help?
A doctor, sounds like restless leg syndrome.
drink lots of water
do a bit of stretching.. but generally, take it easy/rest,
Warm bath with epsom salts; possibly some Advil if you are really uncomfortable and a little bit of the "hair of the dog" that bit you. Try a gentle walk, which although it will hurt like the devil at first, should begin to loosen the muscles and ease the soreness as you go. Stretching if you can, and I also find massage helps -- some people find it doesn't, so this is going to be a depends suggestion.
You may want to try to soak in a warm bath, do some light stretching and use something like a foam roller if you have one to roll the tension out. I don't know what you do during the day, but I know standing for long periods of time, especially in one place can cause the calves to cramp.
A good massage may also be beneficial. You may have to give it a little time before the problem goes away, but I believe doing those things should help.
Try Gatorade or some other drink that has potassium in it.
Thanks for all the advice. i actually go in this week for an ultrasound.
