my mother is 47 yrs ols. she had been complaining of severe chest pain. got the angiography done and nothing came up. doctor diagnosed angina and presecribed dilzem 30. now she has severe pain in the calf muscles, unable to walk. is this a side-effect? should she discontinue?
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. regards

I just finished taking Amoxicilin for a sinus infection but still have so much drainage down the back of my throats that I cough a lot. Now my right side hurts right at the height of my bra strap. Could this possibly be from coughing so hard and so much? Heat doesn t seem to help and Naproxin hasn t touched it. My next resort is to try and put an ice pack on it. Any thoughts?
