Suffers cramps and has cramps are both fine. Using the verb "to get," with a cramp is also fine "I have got a cramp in my leg." But we do not 'catch,' cramps.

"To suffer" from, or "to get" cramps (plural) implies that you get them often. For example: "Many women suffer from period cramps every month", "I get stomach cramps every time I run" "To get" a cramp (singular) is a single event. For example: "Last night I was asleep when I suddenly got a cramp in my left leg!"
