    I didn't even know muscle loss was a symptom of fatty liver!! That makes so much sense! I've had such severe muscle pain and Charlie horses even though I dunno like 5 liters of water a day! I just though "oh I'm 40 now so I guess my muscles are just going to do that". I had to quit my job as a server because my body was experiencing so much pain. I'm not overweight, but now exercising seems so much more important. I feel like complete garbage almost everyday. Why did my doctor not mention this? I swear I asked her if it would cause my body to be super achy. She said it wasn't bad enough yet to be causing any other symptoms besides my fatigue, but I think she is wrong!

      , I know it sounds crazy but put a bar of soap underneath your sheets near your legs. This helps tremendously with cramps and spasms. Rubbing a bar on the cramping area helps also.
