Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic.

I understand from your query that you are having an infection on your leg which did not respond to 2 courses of antibiotics. You are now concerned whether your current symptoms( leg cramps, body ache, fever) are related to your vitamin intake.

Based on your history, I feel that your current symptoms are related to a flare of your leg infection. Worsening and spreading of an infection could be associated with systemic symptoms like body ache and fever.
I do not think it is related to the vitamin intake.

Could you send me a picture of the infected leg so that I can assess better?
