Q: Leg pain with ventricular tachycardia?

I woke up this morning with a sharp pain in the right calf of my leg. I have been diagnosed with ventricular tachycardia, so should this be something I should be concerned about?

Hi bombsuitgirl, 

The pain could be caused by a number of things...it could be a cramp, a blood clot, a pulled muscle, a side effect to a medication, etc. If the pain persists or if it was bad enough that it concerns you, I encourage you to see your physician.  Many of the pains I listed above are not critical, but some issues, such as a blood clot, can be dangerous.

Best of luck,
