Thank you for your question.

Can you please mention your age and gender.

I am a 52 year old male.
I always had tight calves. I now go for physical therapy for my balance.
I am on blood pressure, cholesterol and gout medication

I always seem to be fighting myself when I walk. I can't relax
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

Have you had any recent blood tests done to have these symptoms evaluated?

I am looking for electrolyte levels particularly.

Has your problem started after starting to take the cholesterol medications?

Have you had your lower back evaluated with MRI scan?

Please let me know.

Sorry for the late response.
