Leg Cramps; Torso Cramps

10/21/2009

Question:

I am having the most bizarre thing occur. First, I had leg cramps. My doctor prescribe quinine, until the FDA decided that there was only antedotal evidence that this worked.

Now I get cramps when I`m either in the bathtub or in bed both in my legs and torso. I could sneeze and get them in my torso, too. I`ve been ultrasounded ; nothing found.

Any ideas? Do I need to go back to the dr. on this?

Thanks!

Answer:

Yes, ask your doctor to evaluate your magnesium, calcium and vitamin D levels.
