Our expert says:
The symptoms you describe of cramping and bloating plus swelling of the fingers, could be caused by a wide variety of conditions. For example, the bloating and cramps may indicate irritable bowel syndrome, while cramps and swollen extremities may indicate kidney problems. It is, therefore, essential that you discuss these symptoms with your medical dr so that we can obtain a diagnosis. Because you seem to be a lacto-vegetarian you also need to ask the dr to test your blood levels of iron, zinc, protein, vit B12, and calcium because your symptoms could be due to a deficiency.
