Suggest Treatment For Pain In The Calves Muscles
Please be advised to follow up with your treating physician
Thank you for trusting HCM
There are three important considerations for the muscle pain you are experiencing:
Hydrocortisone-induced - Excess hydrocortisone in the body can affect muscles
Thyroid hormone excess/deficiency
cellulitis which is an infection of skin presenting with pain, redness, and swelling of the affected area (if you have a history of diabetes).
Clinical examination, serum creatine kinase level (which is a muscle breakdown product), serum cortisol levels, thyroid hormone levels needs, blood culture( to rule out cellulitis) are recommended for initial screening for assessing the muscle condition and whether the dose of hydrocortisone and thyroid supplementation is appropriate.
Please be advised to follow up with your treating physician to undergo the necessary evaluation. According to blood results, dose of your hormone supplements may need to be adjusted.
If cellulitis is present, antibiotic therapy is needed.
Hope this answers your questions
