I suffer leg aches and pains at night when in bed. They are relieved once I get up, but disturb my sleep. I walk an average of 10 kilometers most days. I am 73 yrs. old and have had by-pass surgery 5 years ago although I never actually had a heart attack.

I have been diagnosed with a B12, folic acid and magnesium deficiency and have had 2 B 12 shots and am taking prescription follicle acid and over the counter magnesium. I have a severe ache in both of my legs. I am not able to walk hardly any distance and I really suffer for it. How long will it take for me to get relief with the vitamins I am on? Also is there a over the counter drug I can take until then. I have a job standing on my feet all day and really suffer from it. I am a 63 year old female with no other health problems. Thank you

Dear Dr please help I feel so rough in the mornings, my head is heavy I just want to go back to sleep but I have to push myself. I find it hard to think clearly and have to fake it that all is well. The foggyness has gone from my head by the afternoon and I feel human. I was thinking could it be SAD as the feeling is worse in the winter. In the heart of summer I don t feel so bad. But I have notice the symptoms have reappeared. I have anemia and take iron tablets. I have cut meat out of my diet 90% as I want to eat as healthily as possible and I believe that a vegeterain diet is the most healtihest. Please help me.

I have a history of anemia. My iron stores have been low the past year or so. I started a low dose birth control pill that regulated my periods during the same time. Up until recently they have been very regular, with no change in iron levels. Now I have been bleeding for 45 days. Dr's are not sure why my levels never went up but they did infusions. Why all of a sudden is my period irregular again. Would the iron infusions contribute to this? Will they even work if my period does not stop?
