You will have to consult your doctor, as there are numerous causes for your symptoms. Your doctor will have to do blood tests, to test for electrolyte abnormalities and to rule out ongoing infection that can also be the cause for your symptoms. In the interim, you can supplement your diet with Calsium and Magnesium tablets, as well as Selenium and Zinc.
