Question: I am having several "weird" symptoms that don't seem to go together. They include: fatigue, muscle/joint pain (hips, hands) as well as muscle cramps in fee and calves, low sex drive and occasional dizziness. I am a 46 year old female in menopause. Could this be related to the menopause or could it be something different?

Brief Answer:
Yes, likely to be menopause.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
I am reasonably certain that this constellation of symptoms belongs very much to menopause.
Please try and consult your doctor to see if a trial of HRT makes a difference to the symptoms.
That will confirm it.
All the best.
please feel free to discuss further.

Hi, I had been drinking licorice tea for about two months. About 3-4 weeks ago I began having muscle cramps, weakness, tingling in my arms, neck, back, and legs. After getting a normal MRI result, I googled licorice and discovered the problem! I discontinued the tea a week ago, and have been increasing my potassium foods. How much should I take in each day, and how long will recovery take? I seem to have good days and then wrevert a bit.

Hi, I m a 62yr caucasian male. A recent US showed 4 benign cysts. 6.8cm,2.4cm.1.6cn on interpolar left and 1.7cm on parapelvic right. All have grown since my last US 2 years ago. My creatinine is 1.69. I have had 3 episodes of PE s, 4 episodes of DVT s in 4 years. I am now on warfarin with INR 2.9. I have spinal stenosis from an old L1 burst fracture. I have lower back leg pain and muscle cramps. I m concerned about complications if I have the cysts aspirated. Managing the pain requires quite a bit of narcotic pain meds which cause constipation and then additional pain. Could the aspiration reduce the pain level? What other concerns could the procedure cause?

Hi, I am a 50 year old female. I have had a history of kidney infections and UTI's. In Decemeber of 2009, I had an infection that was caused by an antibiotic resisitant strain. Through the entire 6 months, I was on 17 different courses of antibotics, two of which were IV antibiotics (inempim and ertapenim). I finally got rid of that infection, but since, have had several routine UTI's. Now I have extreme fatigue and muscle cramps in my upper arms and now I have an other UTI. Can Kidney/UTI infections, fatigue and upper arm pain all be related?
