I am a diabetic type 2 on insulin and metformin. I am 65 years old
I had colon cancer I am now cured of that after big surgery it has been two and half years since surgery. I have had an iliostomy bag now.
I am suffering with severe night cramps and am awake almost all night. It is making me very tired all day but I do not get the cramps during the day time.
These cramps are usually below my knees - ankles an toes.
Someone told me that homeopathy will help - it was suggested that I take Cupram 30,
four times a day, two drops ea time.
Please help and tell me if this is the correct medicine and the correct dose. I would like to know where these medicines are available?

Dr. David :

causing these cramps in your leg at night time

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

like Requip or Sinemet that your doctor can prescribe for you which should help.

Dr. David :

I would try the conventional medications for these restless leg cramps are you having at night.

Dr. David :

they are very effective and have little side effect risks.

Dr. David :

also you need to make sure you get your blood potassium and magnesium levels checked.

JACUSTOMER-xv05lsvf- :

Why not homiopathy medicine called Cupram for cramps

Dr. David :

you can try it.

Dr. David :

but it may not work as well prescription medications

Dr. David and other Medical Specialists are ready to help you
you can try homeopathic medications

but you have to find a proper homeopathic practioner.

and not all remedies work for all patients

the conventional treatmetns from your doctor for restless leg syndrome such as Requip and Sinemet are also very very effective with minimal side effects

I have treated many patients who have restless leg syndrome with good results

also make sure you get your blood checked for low potassium and low magnesium levels as well. these can be supplemented easily and corrected
