In brief: Possible

The major side effect i hear as a surgeon is the pt.
Complaining of aches -mild pains- cramps in the thigh muscles primarily or second - around the hip joint - so that it is hard to stand up, get on/off my exam table, or off the toilet or climb stairs. Shooting pains is rare - making me think first of radiating pain from the lumbar spine - sciatica- possible L2 L3 or rarely direct bone involveme.
