Shoulder pain. Have tendonitis, plantar fasciitis. Taking vyvnase. Is that the cause?

Could Vyvanse be the cause of my tendonitis? Since taking the medicine, I ve developed tendonitis in my shoulder , hip, ankles and feet. I feel tense when I m on the medicine and can t stretch out. At first it developed in my shoulder after a couple months on the med. I ve been running for years and have always been pain free. I developed achilles tendonitis and plantar faciitis about 4-6 wks later. I m still being treated and physical therapy isn t much help. I have to get steriod injections to help with the pain and I haven t been running in 3 months now.

While Vyvanse may increase irritability,muscle tremors and tics,it has not been reported to cause myalgia or tendonitis.You need to see a orthopaedic surgeon or a sports medicine specialist to establish the cause of the plantar fasciitis and shoulder problem.
