I am at my wits end. Have severe cramping in the fingers, toes and sometimes calf and forearm. The forearm will sometimes lock up into a contrated position and I can't even bend it. The fingers and toes will contract into very weird painful positions. Have been tested for magnesium, calcium, potassium, etc. even Rheumatoid arthritis. Everything comes back normal with the exception of the calcium. I have upped the calcium and it still hasn't helped,plus I eat alot of dairy. Some days it happens six or seven times a day and then there might be a week or two with no symptoms. I don't know what type of dr to see. A neurologist or a endcronologist? Anyone have any ideas. I Have had my thyroid removed and also had a amputation due to Peripheral Artery disease.Anyone have any ideas as to what to check for next or what kind of dr to see? Thanks in advance
