I am a 29 year old asian woman. I have suffered occasional
leg pains since I was about 16. However in the last two
months my pains have got so bad that I do not know what to
do. I went to see a doctor who did a number of blood tests
and a MRI scan. Every thing was normal except my ASOT level
which was 800. This went down to 400 after 1 week of
antibiotics. I am in the second week of my programme but I
still have severe leg pains.
My legs are generally better in the morning.The pain is
My cousin had a similar problem but died of Breast cancer
about 20 years ago. Also both my fathers brothers daughters
I don't know what to do and would really appreciate some
Also I have lost my appitite. The doctor gave me some
vitamins which improved my apitate. Since I now no longer
exercise my weight has also increased.
Is this a serious condition? what steps should I take?
You might consider taking niacin to improve circulation. If you have cramping the legs and/or they feel hot/burning, your circulation may not be up to snuff. I have found Vit C helps with leg cramps, etc, given that it's a natural anti-inflammatory.
Hope this helps.

Hi Milli, Your going to think this is a foolish Idea but I watch a man regain the full use of both his legs after having sever pain and circulation problems by simply using a specially designed Advanced Kenko Technoloy. You being of asian desent might have heard of this. Its a magnetic insole that covers the whole surface area of the bottom of your foot. You can't go to a doctor and ask him about these products because they'll tell you their phony but you can ask someone who was about to have his legs amputated and he'll gladly tell you about them. Good luck
