Hopefully someone can shed some light on a very unfortunate experience that I am going through with life after fin. I have been on a M-W-F dose of 1.25mg for 1.5 years. I have stopped the use of Finasteride on Feb 6th, 2012.
As I was tapering off the drug, I started to get random muscle twitching and has since progressed to twitching with random muscle pain that comes and goes. Pain/Soreness comes out of no where anytime (e.g. quads, forearms, hands, ankle, knees…) Pain/Soreness is a 3-4 on a scale of 1-10.
Had blood work done and it showed I was low on Vitamin D and low Testosterone (200s). It also showed a CPK of 711 with elevated Aldolase levels. This is scary because my doctors thinks my body is damaging my own muscles. He thinks it may be Myositis, an autoimune disease… I definitely have aches in legs but don’t notice any weakness at all. I workout daily and while there is random pain it’s no accompanied by weakness and it doesn’t stop me from doing anything regular that I am use to.
I want so bad to believe that maybe my low Vitamin D and low Testosterone are the culprit for the muscle ache/pain and that the worksout I do may have cause the increased CPK of 711 and the elevated aldolase.
Any opinions would be really appreciated… Sorry for the long post.
