Hello all - I really need your help. I have been having severe muscle cramps in all muscles after moderate or light use. I have been getting very severe cramps after walking a few blocks when I normally can walk miles and miles. I get cramps in jaw after chewing a steak. I get cramps in my arms after taking out garbage. Cramps in my hand after normal activity (thumb and index finger pulling together and locking). Went to doctor and had full work-up at NYU. They had few answers. A few things were a little abnormal. My BUN was 26, my BUN/Creatinine ration was 24. My creatinine was normal at 1.1. My vit D was low at 17. My RDW was slightly high at 17.1 (prev was 19.4). Doctor says this cannot be causing severe symptoms I am having. It is so bad I cannot lie down after walking, the cramps are so bad, I get up and walk around for a few minutes and they get a little better. I am not dehydrated at all. I take all necessary supplements and blood work shows it. Cramps are worse in legs because they get the most use but it happens in every muscle. Even when I am cleaning myself in shower, if I turn to left or right, pain in the "lats" of the side I turn. Please help if you can. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
