Probably not: Most people with statin induced muscle pain will have it from all statins. There are other types of choelsterol lowering drugs that are not statins that can be tried including niacin. All drugs, however do have side effects so it can be difficult to find one you tolerate. ...Read more

Causes of some minor pain and aching in hip joint and upper thigh discomfort after total hip joint replacement?

I would ask your orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

Hi I have Si joint pain or piriformis, sharp pain in back, stabbing pain in thigh and calf it doesn't travel. Now stabbing pain in front ankle, related?

Hi I have Si joint pain or piriformis, sharp pain in back, stabbing pain in thigh and calf it doesn't travel. Now stabbing pain in front ankle, related?

Sciatica?: In my experience, "SI joint" and "Piriformis" syndromes are commonly over-diagnosed by mistake.

Instead, I do see a lot of cases of sciatica from degenerate discs and pinched nerves in the lumbar spine. From your description, I wonder if you might have a pinched L5 nerve in your lumbar spine.

Is muscle soreness in upper arms and upper thighs a part of spinal stenosis? I am not having much joint pain. 63 years of age female good health active very good range of motion stiffness after sitting

Is muscle soreness in upper arms and upper thighs a part of spinal stenosis? I am not having much joint pain. 63 years of age female good health active very good range of motion stiffness after sitting

Common: Common symptoms of spinal stenosis

leg pain with walking can be caused by either arterial circulatory insufficiency or from spinal stenosis. Leg pain from either condition will go away with rest, but with spinal stenosis the patient usually has to sit down for a few minutes to ease the leg and often low back pain, whereas leg pain from vascular claudication will go away if the patient simply stops walking.

Although occasionally the leg pain and stenosis symptoms will come on suddenly, they generally develop over the course of several years. The longer a patient with spinal stenosis stands or walks, the worse the leg pain will get.

Flexing forward or sitting will open up the spinal canal and relieve the leg pain and other symptoms, but they recur if the patient gets back into an upright posture. Numbness and tingling can accompany the pain, but true weakness is a rare symptom of spinal stenosis. An older person leaning over the handle of their shopping cart while making short stumbling steps often has spinal stenosis.
Muscle soreness in upper arms could be due to cervical stenosis but there are other reasons as well, like electrolyte imbalance, side effects of medications and myopathy. Recommend seeing a specialist for final diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I have joint pain, the pain is in both my elbows, left leg and I have the sicikel cell trait, can it be the cause.

Let me explain: If only one parent passes the sickle cell gene to the child, that child will have the sickle cell trait. With one normal hemoglobin gene and one defective form of the gene, people with the sickle cell trait make both normal hemoglobin and sickle cell hemoglobin. Their blood may contain some sickle cells, but they generally don't experience symptoms. So try to look for another reasons. ...Read more

I've taken crestor for yrs after not tolerating effects of lipitor (atorvastatin). Lately I've had joint pain & leg pain at night. From crestor after all these years?

Possible...: It is possible to develop side effects but it is unlikely without some other change. If you started using another medication or supplement that was metabolized by the liver, side effects would be more likely to occur. You can always take a "drug holiday", hold the medicine for 5 days and see if symptoms resolve. If they don't resolve, resume the medication and look elsewhere for the cause. ...Read more
