Extreme pain in calf
My mother has extreme pain in the calf especially while sleeping. Full body check ups have not revealed much. 1. What could the reason be for this? 2. Is it indicative of osteoporosis? 3. What should be done to detect and correct this?

Hi. This could be cramps due to water and electrolyte imbalance. Ensure sufficient hydration by asking her to drink atleast 2.5 lt of water (average) and of no other restrictions; and if she is not diabetic, you can give her lemon juice with a pinch of salt. Ask her to have a clear bowel evaluation. The second reason may be vascular claudication. Use pibda taila for application from below upwards followed by lukewarm water pour. Things will improve in 3 days.
