In brief: ? vitamin deficiency
The classic disease called beriberi is a vitamin b1 deficiency disease and one of its earfy characteristics is tenderness in the calf muscles.
Squeeze your calf muscle gently and ascertain whether it is painful. Thiamine deficiency is widespread in U.S. Because we have statistics that indicate 150 pounds of sugar per capitum per annum.
