I have been having a funny pain in my left leg lately. It occurs either straight away when I go to bed, or in the morning before I wake up. I get it whenever I have had more than a minimum of calcium in my food. Ten years ago, cancer treatment left me with maldigestion, and I have to take various supplements for that. During a period when I had very little milk products, this also included calcium. Then I started having custard daily, and forgot to stop the calcium, so for quite a while I had too much of it. This was when I developed the pains. Having finally twigged that I was taking too much calcium, I stopped, of course. However, this is now three weeks ago, and I still get the pains. This does not seem to improve. Unless I have hardly any calcium in my food at all - which cannot be right, surely? Today I had cabbage, some bits of turnip and 3 spoonfuls of custard, which was apparently too much. Also I wonder why it is just my left leg? Does it take that long for hypercalcemia (if that's the name) to disappear? Thanks!
