When I finally was well enough to go to my doctor, he didn't think there was anything wrong. He sluffed it off because...

    I don`t get these cramps very often, in fact it must be over two years since my last attack, until, two nights ago. Omg the pain is so bad but I can`t understand what causes it in that particular place, I was scared to go to sleep last night in case it happened again. Luckily I`ve still got some quinine...

  • Unexplained pain in arms and legs...

    I’ve been suffering from pain in my arms and legs for around 6 or 7 weeks now, and it seems to be getting worse. The pain is not severe, but probably best described as ‘nagging’. It’s been virtually constant, isn’t eased by resting or sleeping and I’m getting pretty frightened by it now. I’m 63. Does...

  • Hard days night

    I am sorry I haven't responded as I should have but I have been so disheartened about my cramps that occur ever 5 to 6 hours.  The doctor put me on Ropinerole which makes the hurt go away after about 35 min of taking it, but it also puts me to sleep.  If I am traveling and I take it on...
