Continually having cramps in legs, arms and neck

Posted by sakota9 (Joan) @sakota, Jan 22, 2019

Hi my name is sakota and was wondering if anyone continually has cramps. Like leg, ankles, fingers. Up my arm but just the right one and now cramp in my neck off and on every day but just on the keft side. I’ve had cramps before. For a few days I had cramps off and on day and night and my legs were so sore from the cramps. Been in for blood work. Electrolytes and potassium were both good. I do have copd and lung cancer. Thanks

I got leg cramps in my feet and toes when the dr had me on TPN for nutrition. I had a partial small bowel obstruction and was on a liquid diet. They stopped when I was able to get off the TPN.

Hello, @thull – thanks for sharing about the connection between the total parenteral nutrition (TPN) and your leg cramps. Did your doctor offer a theory on why these may have been related?

No, but I googled it and saw that it was listed as a possible side effect by some other people. As soon as I was off, the cramps stopped. Also, I had some elevated liver enzyme, AFT I think that went back to normal about 6 to 8 weeks of being off the TPN as well.
