What Causes Shin Cramps At Night
Cramps Cause?: Any tubular structure in the body response with pain to pressure causing distention if the tubular structure is the intestine for example the pressure is exerted by contraction of the wall as in gas pains. Similarly when the uterine muscle contracts there is cramping. Varicose veins are painful as they are forced to distend. Uterine cramps at menses can be relieved by ibuprofen.
Many: Not limited to men! Usually fatigue. Could be due to medications taken. Diuretics exacerbate this by causiing low potassium, magnesium and perhaps low calcium. Poor hydration contributes to this. If one has poor circulation to the lower extremities (pvd), leg crams can occur. Sometimes we just don't know why they cramp. You may be helped by some meds. See your pcp and discuss.See 2 more doctor answers
I have severe leg pain at night that wakes me sometimes... Not a cramp like achey pain. What causes this?
Lessen you dosage: Consult with your doctor. The rx instructions indicate a reduction of dosage is in order under the guidance of your doctor. A pill splitter can cut the pills in half to give you half dose. You can eliminate certain days a week to cut your overall dose. I know a person that reduce their dose to taking only 5 mg once per week - approved by their doctor, and is doing well..

Maybe: All statins including zocor (simvastatin) can cause muscle pains, usually proximal muscles such as thighs or arms, and usually bilaterally. If you have this, check your ck blood test with your primary care doctor to rule out a more serious complication and try to stop it to see if the symptoms disappear - they always do in case of statin associated muscle pain within 1-2 weeks of stopping the medication.See 1 more doctor answer

After 5 yrs of tamoxifen I was switched to arimadex by hcp am noticing "severe" leg cramps at night what can be the cause the exercise I'm doing?
Maybe Arimidex (anastrozole): Arimidex (anastrozole) lowers your body estrogen to virtually zero. In studies, 15% of patients had joint pain and 7% had bone pain. Many of my patients develop pain in their joints or back, and some in their legs. So it could be the arimidex, (anastrozole) or it could be the exercise. Ask your doctor if a trial off the drug for a few weeks would be worth trying. That way you can know for sure!

CPK: CPK is found mainly in the heart, brain, Liver, and skeletal muscle. Inflammation and injury to either of these Organs can increase CPK level. Your value is mild to moderately high, I recommend that you recheck it again and if it's elevated then your primary doctor should look for the cause. If this test was done right after the surgery it could be just due to surgical trauma. Good luck.

Leg: Leg cramps at night are often a sign of vascular insufficiency. If your nerve conduction studies are normal, it would make sense for you to be evaluated by a vascular surgeon for either arterial or venous insufficiency. In particular, venous insufficiency is an oft underdiagnosed condition.See 1 more doctor answer
