were you drinking alcohol before?

I've been on holiday for 4 weeks and been out a few time but nothing more than what I would go out back home if anything a lot less... yes I've been sleeping great except for now were it's 4am and I woke up so hot with the pain in my legs really hurting me...so I went to the bathroom check to see if my eye had gone down but it seems to have gotten worse
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

I would stop drinking alcohol and drink water and eat more fruits and vegetables.

you may be low in electrolyes and potassium and magnesium in your system.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Yeah that what I have been doing as I got advised todo that by the doctor here... I just hope it's nothing more than that with the amount of flights then I have done in the past 20days
Expert:  Dr. David replied 8 months ago.

I don't think your symptoms have to do with the flights you have taken
