Chronic muscle cramps
Jan 27, 2009

I have and continue to be very active in sports. I have played many sports for about 15 years now. After every game, for 15 years now, I have experienced muscle cramping all over my body. I drink lots of water and eat healthy. I don't understand why my constant exercise would end up this way.

Response from Mr. Vergel

Are you taking blood pressure medications like a diuretic? They can make you dehydrated and also lose potasium and calcium, two minerals needed for proper nerve functioning.

If not, I would have your doctor check your blood levels of calcium, potasium , and CPK, an enzyme that measures muscle myopathy.
