    Right Leg Cramps in Calf

    I have a continuous dull ache, some cramping and now and then some slight pain in my right calf & in the bend of my leg behind my knee. I don't have it in the left leg. Could this be peripherial artery disease? Has anyone had this? It has been slowing developing over the past 5 or 6 years, but I could live with it. Now, I am wondering if I might have a blockage that is getting worse. How do they test for this. I am 56.

    I can't say with any medical knowledge but, you should see a doctor! Why risk having a larger medical problem! You are at prime age for heart related problems! Get yourself checked & I hope you feel better!

    That sounds bad for me then. I am 36 years old and I have had that for the last 4 weeks. I think it could be a possible strain I am aggrivating too many times!

    Texas, I seem to have what you are explaining and the doctors seem to be stupified. This has been going on for almost 4 years. Can you remember what meds that worked for you.Thanks, fmc

    Texas,
    What type of meds did you take.

    Ican relate,I've always had the right leg pain but now it's in both.

    I don't have stenosis,I have a impinged nerve and docs don't want to fix it.

    Some relief would be better then none.

    The internet does a great job to inform us.

    Hi Sandy,

    I am 51 and I have what my doctor thinks is mild claudication, a symptom of Peripheral Artery Disorder. However, I have none of the risk factors for it: don't smoke, not Diabetic, no high blood pressure or high cholesterol, and I'm not overwieght. I saw him the other day, and though I have the symptoms you have described, he said my circulation is good. I have some other things going on like burning and prickling skin, which he thinks may be fibromyalgia. Anyway--check the pulses in your ankles, feet and behind the knees. This will help you know if your circulation is normal. Let me know what you find out!

    Hello Everyone
    For those of you that haven't got a diagnosis for your calf pain, this pain can also be caused by a medication. If any of you are taking statins (cholesterol meds), then I would suggest getting a blood test called a CPK.
