I got really nuts on the addtion of a small amount of potassium when I was on lasix. I used to get charley horses all the time in my legs before my diabetes and thyroid were diagnosed,but I'm also convinced it is a dietary thing maybe more than anything else. Calcium is supposed to be good, I used to drink milk. I also heard magnesium, they make vits with both. Sometimes just taking a good multivitamin, just a normal one with not a bunch of herbal stuff in it, can be good. My dad and I got them with diabetes, we both go high and low with our blood sugar because we ave this hereditary fatty liver/metabolic syndrome x stuff. In fact, my dad went on straight insulin and it nearly killed him, his sugar wouldn't come down, because our diabetes is caused by a glycogen storage problem in the liver, not by the pancreas, though if untreated, it wll progress to burn out the pancreas and become insulin dependent diabetes. It something to get checked for.
I was told I have fibro, but not sure I believe fibro is something. I think fibro is a fancy way for docs to say they don't know what the heck is wrong and what to do. B6 helped me. I think they will eventually find out that fibro is dietary and hormonal at least in part, and that we are deficient. After all, the one things docs seldom if ever check are our vitamin and hormone levels. Some check D3, which is good.
