Cramping is not listed as a side effect of Orencia although leg pain is a "less common" side effect and "body pain" a common side effect. Baffling - I know.
A question for you:
1) How long has she been injecting Orencia? If over several weeks the side effects should have gone away; if not call your doctor and your pharmacist - it could be reacting to other drugs your wife is taking or it could be a bona fide side effect of the Orencia.
Usually cramping is treated at home with eating a banana a day for its potassium or baked potatoes. I have had good luck in drinking a small amount of tonic water WITH quinine. My yoga classmates swear by this, and it worked for me - instantly.
The leg cramping and leg pain could go hand in hand, but either way, I'd check interactions checker here on drugs.com AND call the doctor and pharmacist.
I hope this helps,
All the best,
