I am experiencing sudden right arm cramps down the inside of the arm straight to the fourth finger, which curls down.

I am a healthy and reasonably fit 67-year-old female with a healthy diet, vegetables, fruits, protein, etc.  All my exams show a clean bill of health.  I am careful to maintain a good potassium balance by eating bananas.  I work out gently about four times a week and do a lot of walking.  I drink tonic water from time to time at my physician's suggestion.  My leg cramps have stopped, but my right arm cramps come on suddenly nonetheless.  Could this be a sign of something potentially dangerous?  Could this herald the onset of a serious muscle disease?
