I've been having muscle soreness in my arms and legs for 3 months. Sometimes my feet or legs have cramped at night. The doctors have not found out what caused it though I believe it may be toxins from 3 different antibiotics and a new birth control I tried in April. I've notice that the muscle pains are worse at the start of my cycles and the normal menstrual cramps are worse than when I was a teenager. Since getting off the birth control last month, the cramps are much better, but I still deal with muscle soreness and stiffness.
At first, I thought I just had a lack of nutrition because of a diet I went on the end of May to cleanse my colon from the antibiotics. At the time I wasn't getting any potassium, carbohydrates, fruits, sugars, fats, or starches. I did the diet for two weeks when the emergency room doctors told me to stop because my body was feeding off my muscles. I'm eating healthy meals now and expected the muscle pain to disappear as my nutrition imroved. They've run blood tests but haven't found anything.
I'm wondering if it just takes time for the toxins to leave my body.
