Just feels like a ran ten mile stiff and sore
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

OK

The possibilities here would be a vitamin D or a magnesium deficiency

For now you can try topical capsaicin cream and some oral ibuprofen

But if this persists beyond this weekend you should see your doctor for an exam and some blood work

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
