Left foot cramps

Almost every night I have severe cramps in my left foot. I have been a postman for over 30 years, but I have never had a problem such as this.
It does not make any difference if I wear shoes, wear shoes with my supports or without the supports. Almost every night (every night?) I get severe cramping from the left front side (toes) of my foot. I usually drink lots of fluids during the day and before going to bed at night. I have had my feet measured for size at a couple of shoe stores.
The cramps usually begin an hour to three hours after going to bed. Last night I had four cramps in an hour.....six in two hours.
So....what do you advise?
Thanks for your help in this matter.
