Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
What is your age?
Since how long are you having this problem?
Do you have any other medical problem?
Are you on any medications for anything at the moment?
Please let me know.
I am 64 D.O.B. 10.9.49
Have been experiencing this the last week
No other medical problems other than I hurt my ankle a week ago and went to see my GP who diagnosed me to take anti inflamatory Naproxen 250 mg one twice daily and as can cause gastric ulcers also prescribed Omeprazole. I am wondering if this has caused my problem so haven't taken anything today but muscle/calf problems still occurring
Thank you for the additional information.
I think that you should have your electrolytes checked first because a problem with potassium, calcium, magnesium among other electrolytes can cause these kind of spasms.
It seems unlikely to be a DVT or a clot.
If it were a DVT your leg would have most likely been swollen.
If it were a clot in one of the arteries rather than a DVT then you would have had a cold foot with reduced sensations on that leg.
How does one get this checked i .e. electrolytes?? Is it available at G.P. Thank you for reassurance re DVT or a clot.
So I think that you should try keeping yourself well hydrated and try taking calcium, magnesium supplements and also get tested. I would like that you should make an appointment with your GP and get these tests done.
Is this a relatively standard test to request at G.P.
Yes, you should make an appointment with your GP for getting examined and then getting these and other required tests done.
Yes very common test.
Done in almost all the labs everywhere and any doctor can write it for you or prescribe this test to you.
Any more questions?
Are you with me?
I guess not other than do you think it can be addressed without conventional prescriptive meds?
But I would still want you to get tested and examined first.
Yes I think so and for that the first step is keeping yourself well hydrated and taking calcium and magnesium supplements.
Thank you for your help .. really appreciated.
No more questions.
