Muscle Fatigue/spasms

Recommended Posts

I've been gluten-free for 5 years. With the support of homeopathy I have regained much of my vitality, but I have not regained any of the weight that I've lost. Also, I continue to experience injuries and muscle spasms if I exert myself. I must have some deficiency in my system, but I've never found anyone who could help me figure this out. I'm curious if this symptom is experienced by others and has anyone found a solution?

Thanks

Hey Jake,

Have you ever had a full blood work up. (It used to be called an Executive Panel). That would be a great beginning to look for deficiencies. On going deficiencies can cause some life long irreversible issues.

I got the same thing before I got diagnosed, and when I was hospitalized, their blood work indicated an extremely low potassium level. DO NOT - please, do not under any circumstances self treat this- low potassium and high potassium are both extremely dangerous. If you think you may have it, get your doctor to check for it. Don't simply go buy supplements. Taking supplements when you are not very deficient can put too much potassium into your blood, and cause heart strain and serious muscle and neuropathy issues.

That being said, it is worth looking into. Also, have you been stretching/resting between things that could cause strain?
