Why am I having painful cramps in my right upper leg?

I went to the emergency room on 8/26 & was found to have a uti so I was on cephalexin for 10 days. Since then I have had bad pains in my right leg like I pulled a muscle. The pain is even worse at night. Feels like growing pains n other times like my leg is needing to pop or something please help

Re: Why am I having painful cramps in my right upper leg?

One your potassium level might be low. Do you get plenty of potassium in your diet? Try eating some banana's during the day. (I know it sounds silly) If that doesn't work, I'd get an appt. with an orthopaedic doc and have them check it out.

Take care,
