Can duphaston cause leg cramps. I started taking duphaston just today morning. And after 2-3 hours, it started giving me cramps on my knees. I am on day 21 of my my cycle. And from yesterday i have mild leg cramps. Is it due to the tablet or anything like implantation or pms?

Every winter I occasionally suffer from night or early morning leg cramps, always in my right leg. I am currently receiving physical therapy for severe hip (right) pain which is improving after only 8 sessions. Problem is, the leg cramps are back with a vengance! The cramps are occuring on or about 8A.M. and can only be described as excruciating and now include the left leg. Is it possible that i am experiencing an excess of calcium? I consume a gallon of milk per week, in addition to all the calcium i take in my diet and supplements. Please help me understand this situation. I am 81 years old, not overweight, nor suffering from heart disease, diabetes or any other chronic condition. I did undergo surgery 2 years ago, for lung cancer and I did not require chemo nor radiation! The tumor was encapsulated and there is no reason to believe that it has metastasized. Please help me understand what is going on. Your input will be greatly appreciated.

I had an ORIF 11 months ago following tib/fib fracture. Plates and screws remain in-situ. Over the last couple of weeks I have been experience severe leg cramps at nighttime/early morning, in that leg. Is this common in legs that have metalwork - or is this just coincidence?
