Muscle cramps in legs, unable to sleep, metallic taste in mouth. Arthritic pain?

my husband has continuous leg/ muscle cramps on both legs. he can t sleep and the only way to eleviate the pain for a short while is to rumb or basically hit his legs. When that happens though, he always forms a metallic taste in his mouth. He also has problems with his hands and legs swelling . He s gone to many doctors and all they do is give him medicine for arthritis and that does nothing for him but upset his stomach. He is not currently taking any medications . Any thoughts?

It seems that your husband might be having neuritic pain, due to vitamin B1,B6,B12 deficiency.
Go for course of this injection.

Take Calcium and multi vitamin supplements.
