Extreme thigh pain, agony & partial immobility that your daughter is experiencing is due to the side effect of Acetazolamide
. Acetazolamide causes to excrete potassium in the urine. Potassium deficiency
causes tiredness, fatigue, muscle cramps
, stiffness, pain, numbness or tingling.
It may cause periodic immobility or paralysis
. You are suggested to give your daughter ORS, Electrolyte or potassium rich food to do away with potassium/ sodium deficiency
. Inform your treating doctor so that the doses can be reduced or medicine replaced by other medicine that will suit your daughter better.
