What causes severe cramps in the feet and leg?
calcium / vitamin deficiency
Thank you for posting the question.
Leg and feet cramps at your age are usually a result of low calcium / vitamin D or other vitamin deficiencies (especially vitamin B6 and B12)
You can get your blood checked for these deficiencies.
After that you should start on calcium,vitamin D and multivitamin supplements.
Green leafy vegetables with fruit juices along with high protein diet will help.
Carnitine deficiency is also a cause of such symptoms.
You can take L carnitine tablets once a day along with the above supplements.
I hope the answer was useful.
Feel free to ask me any follow up queries that you may have.
You can get back to me if you have any other doubts.
Do let me know the improvement once you start on the supplements.
You can close the discussion if you do not have any further queries .
One more question please. Ever since I stopped taking estrogen, my hair has started two fall out. What can I do about it? and is there something I can take too stop it.
