Are muscle cramps and pains normal after colposcopy?

I am 41. Had a colposcopy done 10 days ago with good results but for about five days now I have been having chronic muscle aches in my thighs and mild cramps (almost how my PMS used to be in my younger years)... overall nagging aches...why? Is this normal? I had a colposcopy done about 6 yrs ago with no problems. Now I m worried.

dear friend, I understand your concern, no need to worry, see muscles cramps and pain may be due to many reasons but most common will be fatigue and nutrition deficiency as you said there was history of colonoscopy so due intestinal erosions the temporary reduction in absorption of nutrients will occur, especially when there will be deficiency or lack in calcium and magnesium and vitamin d, then cramps may occur so you just increase your intake of calcium and other vitamin by taking green vegetables fruits every day. do everyday pranayama and yoga practice so your muscles will be flexible and healthy so no cramps will occur. I hope you are satisfied with this answer. thanks
