Chest pain, leg muscle cramps, operated. What can be done?

I have had a problem for years that gave me chest ache which at time was severe. I was sent to a hospital in london where they put a camera int a vein or artery in my leg. iwas able to the operation of my heart (within limits) on an overhead screen. they said I had nothing wrong and had syndrome X. aches with no medical origin and also said a feww people get this. I have recently discovered that the repeating leg muscle cramps I have also been suffering is cured by taking more salt . is this the connection?

Hello.
Thanks for writing to us.
The repeated muscle cramps that you are getting which improve on taking salt regularly are likely to be related to electrolyte imbalances. Taking adequate electrolyte rich fluids like Garotade will help you.
