Question: Muscle cramps

 isaacliew - Mon Aug 30, 2004 11:55 am

Hi everyone,

I'm Isaac from Singapore, age 20. Recently I've been suffering from muscle cramps for one week. My hospital emergency doctor diagnosed my condition as muscle cramp. Recently, my upper abdominal had been quite pain for the past few days. I had been taking Famotidine as a prescription from the doctor, when my abdominal hurts. Paracetamol was also taken to relieve the pain. The next day, I will be seeing a Gastroenterology to assess my condition. It would be most kind if somebody could advice me on this. I look forward for your replies. Thank you.

Yours sincerely,
Isaac Liew Lai Heng

User avatar Hello Isaac,
It's good to have you here! It seems that your doctor suspects dyspepsia more than a muscle cramp by puttin you on antiacids. Do you suffer from heartburn? or waterbrash? Do you have colics?
