Sorry but the last post about muscle cramps there has not been any activity since November and I'm a little desperate since my brother is in the hospital and doctors don't have a clue as to what is going on. He has cramps but all over his body. Extreme muscle cramps that are so horrible in pain that he can't move any more. They are on mostly 24 hours! He is in the hospital with constant pain revilers and muscle relaxants but nothing works for him to get better. The medicine is just barely enough for him to go to sleep at night. The hospital has run standard tests (that is what I was told, no specifics) and a CT scan and nothing out of the ordinary came out of them. He is overweight and at age 43. He can't move now since the pain is too great and has lost feeling in his legs. His abdomen is swollen a little. The hospital just says all they can do is treat the systems since they don't know what can cause this. Anybody have any ideas?
