Hi, I am female at age of 30 and married. I do get extensive muscles pain only in my leg that too in one leg at a time. Mostly thigh. On top of this i feel feverish most of the time. My physician did test for thyroid , heamoglobin, vitamin d . Total vitamin d is less around 11ng/ml. He has given some tabets and advice for the same. I am using the same since last 10 days, but no relief as such and condition is same. I do take dolo or crocin at times but no help. Is vitamin d is the reason or should I take care of something else as well.

I ve recently starting suffering from late night cramps in the outside muscles of my legs (I believe preoneus longus???) muscle. It doesn t seem like it is related to exercise or work load during the day.........I haven t changed my diet or starting taking new meds. (I take 2700 mg gapapentin for RLS ). It occurs in both legs nearly simulatenously during the middle of the night. I ve increase my water intake - I take a multi-vitamin.

I have been diagnosed with intestinal Tb and my doctor has prescribed me four akurit 4 tablets,half benadon and one vitamin Becosules tablet per day. Side by Side I am also taking Ayurveda medicines to counter the side effects of akurit 4, such as : Liv 52, Immunocare. I did lot of research on internet regarding combining of Liv 52 with akurit and the conclusion I came to is that it is really helpful in keeping liver healthy , stopping weight loss and preventing nausea feeling. It’s been only 5 days I have been taking this medication and in another 2 days I am going for some blood test to see whether I am having side effects of this medication or not. My question to you is that Is I am doing a right thing of mixing Ayurveda with Allopathic? Secondly after 1 week I have plans to go to Canada for my higher studies. I had already resigned from my current job. I prepared for admission to this University from last 9 months and at the end getting diagnosed with such a disease has really tore me apart. My parents are worried to send me abroad. I am not able to make a decision. Please suggest me what should I do? If I have to go then what precautions and preparation should I do before leaving India? Hope to get some encouraging advice.
