Can neuropathy cause muscle pain?

No, but..... Neuropathy does not cause muscle pain directly. However severe pain of any source can lead to reflex muscle spasm that may present as muscle pain. If the initiating cause is controlled , the pain arising from muscles can get better.

Is it normal for people with neuropathy to have muscle pain and muscle twitches?

Yes. There are basically 3 kinds of nerves in the body: sensory serves, when affected by neuropathy, can lead to alteration in sensation (burning, numbness, pain). Motor nerves can twitch and become weak, and autonomic nerves can cause disruption in things we have no control over: rate of digestion, sphincter control, goose bumps, orgasms, digestion, etc. So yes, when motor nerves they can twitch.

Need more informatio. What are the muscle enzymes CPK and Aldolase. Are they elevated sicne there is urine myoglobin. If the myoglobin is elevated this suggests that the myalgia may be a myositis.

Although basic CK and aldolase measures might help, you may well require EMG and even muscle biopsy. The presence of kidney failure raises concern for many systemic disorders. I think a nephrologist is a very good starting point. Read more...
