I would explain as follows:
Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!
I passed carefully through your question and would explain that your symptoms could be related to metformin
Other possible causes to consider would be: local inflammation, a stretched muscle or a pinched nerve in this region.
For this reason, I would recommend consulting with your attending physician and performing some tests:
- complete blood count
, PCR and ESR for inflammation
- muscular enzymes (CPK, LDH)
- liver enzymes (ALT, AST)
- HbA1C levels
- blood electrolytes, including calcium levels
- uric acid levels .
Considering the fact that you are taking Synthroid
, I would recommend also checking thyroid
hormone levels, in order to make the proper dose adjustments to Synthroid.
It has been reported that also Synthroid may lead rarely to muscle cramps
and spasms. So unnecessary elevated Synthroid doses should be avoided.
You should discuss with your doctor on the above mentioned issues.
Hope to have been helpful to you!
In case of any further questions, feel free to ask me again!
