Hi group, I am 31 year old man with calf muscle pain for the last six months! The moderate level pain is all day long, and yes, can't walk in the mall like I used to nor sit on a long drive well..

Blood work (including electrolytes, B12), EMG all looked normal. In this process of finding whats wrong with my muscles, I got diagnised with Hypothyroid. Its been couple of months that my thyroid levels are normal. My GP, endocrynologist and neurologist all feel that there is nothing wrong with me!

Any thoughts??? Thanks.

  • I have the same problem, the dr. did sonogram to rule out clots in both legs, and MRI of back wasn't causing lower leg pain. The pain feels like shin splints, and is so bad it hurts to put pressure on the sides of my lower calves and ankles. The dr. just said "stretch and exercise"...!!!???? I have fibromyalgia, so everything that they can't find is ...you guessed it. I have tried lots of medications, muscle relaxers, NSAIDS, steroids, but the best medicine was Lyrica, but it aggravated my restless leg syndrome REALLY BAD. If anyone can help, it would be great.
