Question Cramping on ellipticals?

Does anyone else have the problem with calf muscles are so tight that they pull within a few minutes? I have really bad problems with charlie horses in my legs. I have had them since I was probably 13 or 14. I'm 23 and cannot seem to find a solution. I've tried potassium and it doesn't seem to work. Is it just me or do other people have this problem? Maybe ellipticals just aren't for me?

How is your posture on the elliptical? If I lean forward at all my feet go to sleep and I start to get leg cramps.
