Muscle Cramps

Muscle Cramps I suffer excruciating cramps in my legs at night, to the point that I almost hate going to bed. Do you have any tips please?

Muscle Pain

Muscle Pain I have been suffering from fibromyalgia for some years. I've been prescribed l0mg of amitriptylline at night to relax the muscles, which helps somewhat. I am also having acupuncture and take a cocktail of vitamins. I have tried many alternative therapies but am now looking for a way to manage this in the long term. I don't want to be taking medication for ever and would welcome any advice about diet, vitamins, lifestyle.


Meningitis I am scared to death about meningitis. My three-year-old daughter had her meningitis C vaccination last December but, according to our GP, the more common and deadly type is meningitis B. However, the vaccine for this is not available in the UK, apparently because it's too expensive. Please could you give me some advice.


Migraines My eight-year-old son suffers from migraines. The local hospital advised us to cut out chocolate, cheese, cola and yeast extract from his diet. We did this immediately, but he still gets a headache about twice a month. Painkillers help, but I wonder whether cranial osteopathy would be suitable. He had a traumatic birth, resulting in a fast, forceps delivery.

Memory Loss

Memory Loss I’m 41 and am concerned about my short-term memory. On about day 14 of my cycles and at the start and finish of my period, my thinking is muddled, words come out wrongly and I forget names. A blood test showed that I’m not menopausal. My doctor suggested I try progestogen tablets, but I feel apprehensive about taking hormones. I have had a traumatic relationship break-up recently, so stress could play a part. What so you advise?


Measles My six-year-old granddaughter had measles at Christmas. It has left her with healing difficulties and her glands are still up. Is this normal? She has not been immunised and is at present taking a multivitamin and mineral tablet, omega-3 and oils and, occasionally, echinacea and belladonna for her glands.

Mouth Ulcers

Mouth Ulcers My mouth is very painful and inflamed and seems to be full or ulcers. The skin inside is so tight that it’s sometimes hard to open my mouth. I don’t want to take any tablets that may have side effects. Please could you help me?

Mouth Infection

Mouth Infection Over the past few months I’ve been prescribed several courses of antibiotics for a stubborn dental infection. These have left me feeling susceptible to viruses, and they’re not working for the original infection. What can I do to solve the problem?

Mouth Sores

Mouth Sores I have suffered with painful, recurring mouth sores for the past year and a half. They appear as inflamed, coarse white and red patches all over my gums, quite near to the teeth. My doctor and dentist say I just have to put up with them. I have a relatively healthy diet - for a student - but I also suffer with what seem to be cold sores on my lips. They first appeared with a serious bout of tonsillitis and swollen glands six years ago. Please help.

Migraines & Headaches

Migraines & Headaches My doctor doesn't know what to do about my headaches. They feel like migraines to me but I'm not sure. What can I do to feel better?
