Female: 47 years: Ohio: Began ambien when needed for sleep deprivation and within days I have experienced major calf pain. I thought it was due to running or working out too much and it just caught up with me but after talking to someone else about the medication they experienceed the same side effect too. Feels like a constant charlie horse in my left calf. I will not take it for a few days and see if symptoms subside.
