This is driving me nuts!
I've got constant tight hard calf muscles. Any time I go for a walk they pull. And cramp in my hands and feet.
I'm certain this is either me reacting to WP Thyroid (been on it for three weeks and had cramping and numbness/prickliness in hands and feet ever since - though feel great it all other ways (was on Armour that didn't suit before so not starting with no T3 at that start of three weeks.) Could it be the T3 finally getting into muscle cells after all these years (I'm short on one DIO2).
Or, could it be to do with the other supplements?
I've got pernicious anaemia in my family, had my large intestine removed, and have SIBO so although last B12 was up around 800 mark I think it was a false high due to SIBO. So I've been taking high doses of Jarrow B12 5000mcg. 4 or 5 a day. I've felt so much more energised but the cramps are worse now.
I've run out of the brand of iron I was taking SAN Iron & Ester C (wonder if this could be a factor) and instead am taking Douglas Labs Time Release Iron and separate Ester C pill with it. I'm pretty sure the iron is the culprit so could anyone recommend a good iron that'll be kind on my gut? As you can imagine with all my surgery my gut output etc is a big issue for me.
I have to order the SAN brand (prescribed by Belgian doc from Europe) so if anyone can recommend a better option, I'll try it.
I'm taking Zinc, K2, D3, Borage oil (and other fish oils etc) and Magnesium l-Threornate and B3 (plus intermittently a B-complex to supply other B vits) so I don't think those deficiencies are the cause.
Any ideas I'd be ever so grateful!
