If you have maligant hyperthermia , do you get muscle aches in the shoulder(s)?

If: You had malignant hyperthermia you would not be writing this as you would be fighting for your life. Patients with mh are critical and it is fatal without prompt medical attention. It can only happen with exposure to succinylcholine or a vapor gas anesthetic. Nothing else. Succinylcholine is well known to cause muscle aches however after its use and are short lived and not life threatening.
