Brief Answer: Calcium supplements can be taken Detailed Answer: Hello and thanks for reply. It is nice to know that there is no redness,pain or swelling.Therefore there appears to be no infection or inflammation. Therefore in my view you need not worry much regarding this.Sometimes such symptoms do occurs due to calcium deficiency too.Therefore please take calcium supplements for a month and see the results. By then, the symptoms should get resolved if not then you can think of visiting a neurologist regarding this. Hope it helps. Thanks. Take care.
