welcome to Hcm
The calf pain appears to be independent of the drug and unlikely to be its side effect.
The calf pain warrants local palpatory examination and physical tests. Besides a detailed history of pain in terms of onset and severity needs to be obtained.
There could be a remote relation between cardiac pain and calf pain though.
I suggest consulting and investigating the pain with the treating consultant is advised.
