Brief Answer:
Can be due to electrolyte imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in legs and back on having sweet can be due to an electrolyte imbalance that causes a muscle spasm. This can be due to deviation of more blood supply to stomach also. It is best to have electrolyte rich fluids also and do consult your physician for a few blood tests in case the problem persists.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
