Anyone else out there with undiagosed foot pain and leg cramps? janeyb asked that question on April 1, under the heading "Stage 3", and received several answers. Is this a known side effect of treatment? Is there any relief?

I did not have foot pain but leg cramps were really bad...I am thinking that they may not be a side effect of treatment, but perhaps the depletion of minerals in the system that is a result of eating difficulties that go along with the treatment. I could not eat during much of the radiation so I got depleated...the same has occurred with some of the other problems that have occurred since treatment which limited what I ate or when or whether it stayed with me long enough to be absorbed.
