Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Your cough should be treated with oral prednisone or steroid course.

Pulmonary fibrosis may respond to steroids sometimes.

Leg cramps can be due to the electrolyte deficiencies.

Magnesium 400 mg daily, vitamin D 2000 IU and calcium 1200 mg daily should help.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
