Had a growth removed on leg and bleeding from it. Is it ok to take vitamin E because I take a multi vitamin?

Had a growth removed on leg and bleeding from it. Is it ok to take vitamin E because I take a multi vitamin?

Yes: According to the national institutes of health the recommended maximum intake of vitamin e is 1500 iu/day, though I seldom advise more than 800 iu/day. Most multivitamins contain only 30 iu of e though some have up to 400 iu. I advise only natural vit e (d-alpha tocopherol) & avoiding synthetic e (dl-alpha tocopherol) & ideally taking e with mixed tocopherols. See my comment for why:.

For what reasons might a multi vitamin cause leg cramps?

For what reasons might a multi vitamin cause leg cramps?

Electrolytes: There may be unrelated electrolytes imbalance. Please see a family dr. And have your blood levels checked. You may also be suffering from spinal nerve root irritation in the lower back spine giving rise to the leg cramps. The vitamins may just be a coincidence but if you are taking vitamins excessively b6 can give neuropathy.

Can there be a vitamin deficiency that causes leg pain?

Can there be a vitamin deficiency that causes leg pain?

Vit D, C certainly: Are known to cause painful legs. Vit d would be more common than vit c which in poor countries can cause scurvy in children, (not likely to occur here in the us). Recently I heard that vit k deficiency can also cause such problems, but I need to research that, before I can state that categorically. Hope that is helpful.

Can vitamins stop blood clots in the legs?

Can vitamins stop blood clots in the legs?

Uncertain: I am unaware of any vitamins that are as potent as meds such as aspirin, Coumadin (warfarin) or plavix. However, there is data showing that supplements such as fish oil, vitamin e, and vitamin c have some blood thinning properties. Regardless, addressing the reason for blood clots in the legs is very important. Dealing with weight, immobility, and inflammation in the blood vessels is crucial for prevention.

Is there a vitamin deficiency that causes leg pain, cramps?

Is there a vitamin deficiency that causes leg pain, cramps?

Magnesium also: This isn't really a vitamin, but magnesium deficiency is a common enough problem for me to mention it here. For this you want 2:1 calcium in combination with magnesium -- say 300mg ca with 150 mg mg. You don't want a huge amount of mg because it could produce diarrhea otherwise.

Hi. My question is...will b12 vitamins help regain sensation back to my legs after also having a shot which can I take liquid or regular tablets?

Hi. My question is...will b12 vitamins help regain sensation back to my legs after also having a shot which can I take liquid or regular tablets?

Sublingual B 12: For convenience, sublingual b 12 is the best choice. Oral b 12 has to travel through the GI system and most of it is destroyed. If you take the kind that melts under your tongue it will go directly into your blood stream and will you absorb most of it. Peace and good health. See doc about leg sensations.

Are there vitamins that will prevent or cure blood clots in the legs?

Are there vitamins that will prevent or cure blood clots in the legs?

No: There are no vitamins or natural therapeutics that will prevent or cure blood clots. Dvt's or blood clots in the leg are a serious condition and could lead to death if improperly treated. The only medications that help are the blood thinners like Coumadin (warfarin) and Lovenox (enoxaparin) (low molecular weight heparin).

Please tell me what vitamin defficiency causes leg and foot pain/cramping/soreness?

It sounds like: More than a vitamin deficiency is going on. Have you ruled out other causes? Magnesium is usually good for muscle cramps but if your complaining of pain i'd look for all possible causes.

It depends on cause: There are many possible causes of muscle spasms. Among the most common is magnesium deficiency; taking magnesium taurate, glycinate or citrate may help. Stress (which can cause magnesium deficiency) potassium, calcium, b vit. Deficiencies or structural imbalances can also cause. Stretching, relaxation techniques & massage may be help, as can herbs like skullcap homeopathy can help too. See comment:.

Could tiredness, pain in the legs, irritability be symptoms of vitamin D3 deficiency?

Vit D3: If you think you are low on vit d3 the first thing to do is to take a blood test and check your level of vit d3. Some symptoms are a weakened immune system (get many colds) and muscle weakness. Please get tested first as too much is as bad as too little and see your md to rule out other causes.

Solgar v formula multi vitamins which contain 75mg B6 I took for10 months I now have experienced tingling in toes legs arms is this dose too high?

Solgar v formula multi vitamins which contain 75mg B6 I took for10 months I now have experienced tingling in toes legs arms is this dose too high?

Most likely not: Vitamin b6 can cause neurological changes like paresthesias, but not usually with doses under 200 mg/day. These also dissipate when the dosing is stopped. If you're concerned about the amount of b6 in your vitamin, you could stop it for several weeks to see how or if your symptoms change. Please work with your doctor on this, since more evaluation may be needed.
