As a follow-up to some recent posts on how to manage specific symptoms, I would like to offer some advice on how to eliminate leg cramps and skin rash, two common symptoms of this neurological condition [parkinson’s] for which the medical community is uncertain of the cause.
For at least a year, I had been experiencing cramps in my calf muscles, usually when stretching my legs while laying in bed first thing in the morning. They were quite painful. Then a couple of months ago I was speaking with a friend who is dealing with amyloidosis, a very serious health condition. He said that he had been experiencing extremely painful leg cramps until his new physician suggested that he try vitamin D3. It worked! The vitamin regimen eliminated the cramps.
I had stopped taking vitamin D3, but on my friend’s recommendation, I started taking it again. Since then, the cramps have been less frequent and less severe. I’m experimenting with the dosage [I’m presently taking 4000 IU per day], to determine the ideal level.
It is also helpful to be well hydrated and to stretch the calf muscles frequently throughout the day.
As for the skin rashes, last year, I started developing them on my chest, throat and right shoulder. Mari suggested that I try Calendula cream and vitamin E, which I did, and the combination eliminated the rashes. I take one Vit E capsule per day [400 IU] and I mostly put the cream on before bedtime because it tends to stain clothing.
If you are experiencing these symptoms, please let me know how you make out with these remedies.
Have an awesomely cheerful day!
