PKD and Muscle Cramps With HeadachePolycystic Kidney Disease (PKD) is characterized by a cluster of fluid-filled sacs on the kidneys. When the cysts grow to certain size ( more than 3cm), they will bring people some discomforts. Both muscle cramps and headache are common symptoms in PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease). Now I will tell you how they occur.

Causes and treatments for headache in PKD

High blood pressure may be the main cause of headache, and it is also an accelerator for renal function decline. If it is related to high blood pressure, you should do your best to keep blood pressure within control.

If the headache persists, you should take it seriously. It is a known fact that the patients with PKD have an increased likelihood of having intracranial aneurysm which is also a common reason for headache. If the intracranial aneurysm ruptures, it will lead to a life-threatening effect to you. Therefore, you should take MRI to find if your headache is related to it.

Causes and treatments for muscle cramps in PKD

Low sodium and potassium level, dehydration, acidosis, and vitamin B deficiencies are the possible causes of muscle cramps. Keeping a restricted diet and taking certain supplements can help maintain the electrolyte balance so as to relieve muscle cramps.

Besides, taking stretching exercise or massage can relax the muscles.
