Our expert says:
Common causes of leg pain are sciatica, vitamin shortages ( neuropathy), electrolyte disturbances ( too low calcium or potassium levels) hormonal ( menopause) I don't think the gall stone has anything to do with this. Rarer causes could be Addison's disease, porphyria and low magnesium levels. The iv antibiotics are probably for the bladder infection and the painkillers to make her comfortable. I don't know what blood tests they did so I don't know for what they looked, they will probably keep on looking until they find the cause - one should sometimes just be patient - it is like building a big jigsaw puzzle - only after you have a few pieces you will be starting to see the picture.
