Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, Orthopaedic surgeon from Fortis C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. Welcome to Practo. As far as your cramps are concerned, it is most likely that they may be due to low calcium or Vitamin D. So I would suggest that you get the following blood tests fasting to find the cause of the cramps: calcium, phosphorus, Alkaline phosphatase, vitamin D levels, pth, uric acid, serum vitamin B12. Vitamin E tablets will not cause any harm but they are not a permanent solution to your problem. Revert back to me with blood investigation reports.
