Brief Answer:
Could be nerves pain

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for your question.

Are you on cholesterol reducing drugs (statin), as some drugs can give similar symptoms

Other cause for the pain and cramps you are suffering from could be coming from your spine as radiating pain from trapped nerves.

If you not on any drugs that can give muscle pain such as statins then I will recommend to have scan on your spine to look into spinal nerves in details.
