I have not had blood test for my cramps. I have had blood test for my Arthritis. I take Magnesium tablets every second day as I suffer from Gord. I have always had a problem with my neck since the 70's. Occasionally i get pins and needles in my hands, I had a carpel tunnel operation on my right wrist. I take progynova and i found out that one of the side affects is cramps. Sorry for not answering sooner but I have not had the chance to check my emails.
Doctor: Dr. Pravin, Physician replied 10 months ago

Progynova tablets contain the active ingredient estradiol, which is a naturally occurring form of the main female sex hormone oestrogen.

The hormonal side effects of etradiol are muscle cramps .

This can reduced by intake of potassium supplements or increasing dietary potassium like increased coconut water intake or bananas.

You can definitely consider stopping the Progynova in case your cramping symptoms are very unbearable.

Please do let me know if you have any further queries.

I did try to stop taking progynova once before but my hot flushes came back and it was really bad so I haven't been game to do it again.
