Does Ramipril cause soreness in the legs?

I m a 56 years old female, I take only one medication Ramipril (blood pressure) I ve been taking this for a while at least a year. I also take supplements (b-12, Omega, vitamin c, turmeric and cinnamon). My question .. is why are my legs sore a bit heavy and sensitive on touch?

Ramipril can cause muscle cramps due to electrolyte disturbances. However, heavy feeling and soreness of the leg is concerning for more serious issues like deep vein thrombosis, cellulitis/infection.

It is very important to follow up with the urgent care/ emergency room as soon as possible. Early intervention can avoid complications.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
