What does intermittent pain in the calf indicate?
Probably related to CRESTOR!
I have reviewed your information fully. This is probably a side effect of Crestor. I will like to know for how long you have XXXXXXX taking this drug. Generally, it is a dull and annoying pain.
I encourage you to rest, drink much water and avoid intense exercise activity. If the pain worsens. then we should measure CPK, a marker of muscle destruction to see what extent this is and if it requires a drug modification or change.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
We would see after you discontinue this!
True it could be something else but the most plausible explanation/cause at this time is Crestor.
If we get no change in pain after this, then we would have at least excluded this.
If it does decrease, it will serve as a diagnostic approach as well. Let’s just be patient and see where this leads us.
However, keep your doctor informed about this because if he thinks the risk of a possible heart/blood vessel problem is huge compared with the pain, it may be prudent to maintain you on this drug.
Hope I have answered your query.
