Arijana, this is very interesting since my calf muscles are very cramped as well. They are so since about one month. However, I went snowboarding for three hours a few days before the cramping started and I attributed it to this. I knew that any sports are a problem for me with CFS and that my muscles usually don’t recover in a normal time range, but still went for it because sitting at home is just killing me. After that my leg muscles felt completely empty for a long time, I could only walk stairs very slowly and the cramping is persisting until today. My muscles are completely hard. I know it was not a very good idea to go snowboarding, but still I find it strange that even after five weeks my muscles have not recovered, so there might be a connection with the copper story… I will slowly decrease my molybdenum dose and am curious what happens.
How is your cramping now? Did it stay away?
I felt exactly what you described but I did not go for snowboarding. I do walk about a mile or two to my car almost every day, but it’s just a walk not a lot of exercise. My calf muscles felt so tight at times it was painful to walk. They would tighten up while sitting as well.
I don’t have any cramping for two days. I do get random aches but not only in calf muscles but throughout my body. Those are not very strong, but this cramping was tough. I would try to massage muscles to loosen them up but nothing worked. At the moment my left calf muscle feels a bit tender but not cramping or tight.
I still get that cool sensation in my calf muscles after drinking kefir or nettle leaf tea (I know it doesn’t make much sense but have been tracking it for a while now) like my clothing is wet there or something. So strange.
So you think we are deficient in copper or had too much of?
