I started lately to get toe, shin and calf cramps. They are very painful. I thought that it was magnesium/potassium deficiency and began to eat bananas. In a follow-up with my GI, I brought it up to his attention. He was alarmed and said this is vitamin deficiency. He prescribed weekly multivitamin injections and he stressed that it is highly important to take them now for a month in addition to a daily multivitamin. Then, I have to get back to him. I always thought that as long as I take a monthly B 12 injection, daily D3 spray and a daily energy booster, my vitamin intake was under control. It turned out I was mistaken. I'm now too in the middle of a flare up. Crohn's is really unpredictable.
