Hi Thanks for using XXXXXXX
I went through the query and understood your concern.
With the similar complaints in my patients I usually like to get investigated for serum electrolytes, uric acid levels and supplement with the protein. In otherwise normal patient the variation in serum electrolytes(potassium) cause severe pain
specially in the legs (calf region) and also rise in uric acid level presents with similar complaints. In some patients who usually don't do regular exercises due to decreased energy in calf region in some occasion the muscle will start aching. So I advice you to get investigated for the above mentioned and have good protein diet.
Some times due to increase creatinine
level or lactic acid in the muscle due to excessive work the muscle will start to ache badly. So for these conditions increased hydration, good nutrient diet and rest will help you to remove the accumulated lactic acid and hence relieve pain.
Since the cholesterol
level is high better to recheck it along with sugar levels. If any variation you can start treatment for the same. Better is to get examined by your doctor once to check for any signs of deep vein thrombosis
or vascular problem (rare cause).
So in total, I advice you to get done serum electrolyte levels, uric acid levels and to have good nutritious diet, protein supplement and good hydration. Food rich in potassium like banana will help in electrolyte imbalance
. Since you are 55 regular calcium supplements
and exercise will help you.
Hope this information helps you.
Feel free to ask if any related query and I will be glad to answer them.
