Hello. I've been on accutane for 45 days. Started on 30 and moved up to 40. I noticed bad cramping in my foot (each side  of heel where the top of a tennis shoe hits) right below ankle. Anyone else experience this?  Definitely noticed since I started using it. Especially painful when I first start moving after I haven't walked in a whwhile. Other than that, minimal side effects and skin looks great already!

I have had bad foot pain as a result of Accutane. I went to urgent care in October, was on crutches for three weeks, had three sets of x-rays, an ultrasound and an MRI. I could not put weight on my left foot. It disabled me. I stopped taking Accutane in November, and I am still experiencing foot pain in January. I went to an orthopedic foot specialist and a rheumatologist. My doctor believes it is the Accutane that caused my foot pain. I am very concerned.
