For the last week she has had extreem hip pain [both sides] . Off and on for 3 or 4 years she gets leg and foot cramps the last for 5, 10 minites or more. They have been recently more often. She has take magnesium, potassium, trace min. They haven't worked for her and sometimes cause more problems. These are extreemly painful have a precurser of tingling where the cramp starts. She had a stool sample test that cameback neg. She has been diagnosed with IBS, arthritis. This last week she has been taking tylenol. She had to quit because her liver can't handle it.
