These cramps started about 3 months ago and have gotten progressively worse. I am concerned about the medication lisinopryl being a major cause and/or developing ALS as my grandfather had.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
One week after starting lyrica developed lower leg and pedal edema with bilateral knee pain. Difficulty going from sitting to standing position due to knee pain.
